It’s Impossible Not To Love One Of The Longest Running Buffalo Traditions

Ah, Thanksgiving – a day to wake up slow, tune into the Thanksgiving Day Parade, and spend the afternoon cooking away in the kitchen for family and friends. Or… for some Buffalonians… a day to run 8K bright and early! While you make plans to gobble ’till you wobble and fill your belly with turkey, 14,000 runners are preparing to join the longest-running race in Buffalo.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
