Whether you spend Thanksgiving at home, at a relative’s house, at a friend’s house or in a restaurant, you’ll want to head out to some Thanksgiving events, especially if you have family from out of state visiting.

Prep the RV by having it checked or serviced at Jim’s RV Center in Nichols, New York, then head out to some of these events. You may already do some of these things as tradition; and if you don’t, you might make them a family tradition from now on.

Macy’s Parade Balloon Inflation

Visit the various inflation stations to see the balloons come to life in preparation for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The inflation event starts at 3:00 p.m. and runs through to 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 26.
