Florida has been faithful to the tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving for 449 years, and this year was certainly not an exception. Throughout the last few weeks, visitors and residents of Florida were also thankful for the wide range of events around Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and even Black Friday.
The state of Florida had quite a lot going on even before this festive season. Its biggest metropolitan area, Miami, hosted the performance of singer Alejandro Fernández and DJ Roger Sanchez. When it comes to holiday special events, people could run the Baptist Health Turkey Trot at Tropical Park, watch the Winternational Thanksgiving Day parade, and in the following days there was the Miami Heat vs. Charlotte Bobcats basketball match, Ja Rule and Lil' Mo's concert and the Holi One Color Festival.
Florida's capital, Tallahassee, didn't fall short on celebrations either. There was the 38th in a row Tallahassee Turkey Trot with four different races that attracted lots of competitors despite the cold weather. One of the more significant future events in Tallahassee is the Winter Festival of Lights, succeeded by the Annual Jingle Bell Run at the Park Avenue that will be on the 7th of December, from 3 to 10 pm. The festival will feature five entertainment stages, food vendors, exhibitions, the Nighttime Holiday Parade and even a children's activity area. The Winter Festival will also mark the opening season of Tallahassee On Ice, so everyone can enjoy ice-skating for an admission fee of only $6.
Miami will also have a Holiday Festival on the 7th at the Pinecrest Gardens, the electronic music artist Shlohmo will perform at the Bardot on the same day, Kansas will have a concert at the Magic City Casino on the 8th, there will be the Frost Saxophone Ensemble on the 9th and much more to come.
Life in Florida is about to through a truly exhilarating period, making this the perfect time to travel and make the most of these many occasions to have fun and spend some quality time with friends and loved ones.
