Two Fort Worth Holiday Events I Enjoy

Don't forget -------

f you run or walk and want to get out of the house Thanksgiving morning join me and 5,000 others for the YMCA sponsored Turkey Trot on Camp Bowie. It's a well run event with food, music, exercise -- and because it's a day off everybody's having a good time. The 5k starts at 8 a.m., but be there plenty early, parking gets scarce. The 10k begins at 8:50. The cost is about $15, the website doesn't say. Early registration starts 11/10/07 . I'll be there. http://www.fwrunco.com/fwtrot/

You might think this a little AARP'ish, but I like the Parade of Lights and the lighting of the Christmas Tree downtown. This year, it will be held on November 23, 2007. The Christmas tree provides a festive mood to downtown during the holiday season. See the schedule for when Santa will be there for the kids. The tree is Blue Spruce and is 56 feet tall. It's an impressive site and worth seeing, especially if you are new to the area. http://www.fortworthparadeoflights.org/FtWorthChristmasTree.aspx
