Thanksgiving Events in Baltimore
Thanksgiving is almost upon us. Some trace the holiday as far back as 1621, and in the centuries since then, our nation has cultivated a number of traditions and celebrations. Whether you’re looking to take a break from the norm or contemplating starting some new traditions of your own, we’ve highlighted a few holiday events that are worth a look.

Baltimore Thanksgiving 2016 Turkey Trots

Runners looking to work up a healthy appetite on the 24th before the Thanksgiving feast have a couple of options:

The Gobble Cobble 5K

The Gobble Cobble 5K starts at 8AM and runs through the Baltimore Inner Harbor–beginning and ending next to MAC Harbor East. The top three male and female runners along with randomly selected participants will take home a pie. A costume contest is also in store. Proceeds will benefit the Sol Goodman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center at Johns Hopkins and the Greater Maryland Chapter of Alzheimer’s Association.

The Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K

The Y Turkey Trot Charity 5K in Baltimore kicks off at 8:30AM. You don’t have to be a member of the Y to participate, and dogs are welcome (but must be on a leash at all times). Best of all, kids six and under are free! The course runs through Druid Hill Park. The top three runners in each age group will take home a medal, and in the weeks following the event, fundraising prizes will be awarded as well. A portion of your registration fee and all donations benefit The Y in Central Maryland.

After Thanksgiving in Baltimore 2016

After food and festivities with families and friends, Friday has traditionally been a time for sales and shopping. The phrase Black Friday first entered the national lexicon in the 1960s as a comment on the heavy increase to foot and car traffic and the disruptions it caused. Some 20 or so years later, the more commonly accepted meaning shifted to the time of year when retailers begin to turn a profit (no longer being “in the red” but instead “in the black”).

It’s also the time when many in the US officially begin to celebrate their Christmas traditions.

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor opens its Christmas Village on November 26th. The opening ceremonies include a visit by the original Christkind from Nuremberg, a Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony (at 4:30 pm), and so much more. Performers, bands and special event weekends will continue to entertain and delight all ages throughout the holiday season.

Our ezStorage self storage facilities will be accessible during regular gate hours on Thanksgiving Day, but our offices will be closed. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and we’ll be back to assist you on Friday, November 25th!
