Ann Arbor Thanksgiving Roundup

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my readers! I am Thankful for you & your support of this site throughout the year. In preparation for Thanksgiving, I’ve assembled a quick list of Thanksgiving events and announced closures and who is open. I’ve also got some crafts and recipes.

Thanksgiving Events

Thanksgiving is not the day for local events. At the current time, the only event that I found was the Turkey Trot and the Wayne County Lightfest.

What’s Open or Closed

Are you wondering what’s open today? Your best bet its to assume that most places are closed (libraries, museums, indoor play locations, stores, etc). The exceptions are some grocery stores, restaurants, and movie theaters.

Thanksgiving Games

We shared some ideas for Thanksgiving Games a couple of years ago. There’s our version of Pictionary – played with an iPad and projected to the TV. We’ve got a word list for you. Plus we’ve created a few Mad Libs style fill in the blanks.
