Thanksgiving in the Parks
Some families have a tradition of spending Thanksgiving in a Texas state park, bringing along all the fixings and enjoying their feast beneath the colors of fall leaves. Those campers and day-pass users can also join in on activities that help burn off those extra calories, such as the 2nd Annual Turkey Trot 5K at, the Turkey Pass (or Pass the Turkey) Hike at or the Thanksgiving Gobble Wobble at .
The fun doesn’t end on Thursday as we encourage you to #OptOutside instead of heading to the mall for Black Friday sales. OptOutside activities include sunrise and afternoon hikes at many parks and the 12th Annual “Walk Off the Bird” Bird Walk at.
You can find all kinds of events at Texas state parks at their event page:.
