Happy Thanksgiving, Bostonians!

Turkey Day will be here before you know it! Just one more week until we all stuff ourselves silly with turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and all of the other delicious trimmings. While some of us will settle in the living room to tune into all of the football games, others will want to do something a bit more active. Your favorite Boston architects have a few suggestions for those who’d like to get out and see what the great city of Boston has to offer:

* Zoolights: This family tradition at Stone Zoo opens on Thanksgiving Day. Walk along paths lit with thousands of lights and see a variety of animals that call the zoo home, like bald eagles, lynx and a pair of reindeer. Santa will be in town too, so visit him down at Santa’s Castle while you’re there!

* 20th Annual Methuen Festival of Trees: More than 200 trees are donated by organizations, businesses, schools and individuals from Methuen and other Marrimack Valley communities. Proceeds benefit various funds that preserve our heritage and the unique Methuen monuments.

* 10th Annual Wild Turkey 5-Mile Run: If you’re the fit and active type, sign up for this fun and charitable 5-mile run. Proceeds benefit the Boys & Girls club and Salem Park & Recreation youth programs.

* 17th Annual Vineyard Artisans Festival: For post-Thanksgiving entertainment and fun, visit the largest holiday art show on the Vineyard featuring more than 85 island artists. Everything from eramic ornaments to clothing and more will be sold, so you can get a headstart on your holiday shopping. The festival is held on Friday, November 29 and Saturday, November 30.

* Parade of the Big Balloons: Even more post-Thanksgiving fun! On Friday, November 29, there will be a parade of these giant helium balloons in Springfield. This is fun for the whole family and even features a visit from Santa!

We here at Boston Architect wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving! No matter where you end up for Turkey Day, we hope you’re surrounded by loved ones and get plenty of turkey.
