With everyone getting busy and ready for the Holidays, sometimes we are in November and become clueless about how to celebrate.
Before Jolly Old St. Nick comes swarming in with presents! Although everyone likes to enjoy the season, attending events can get expensive. Since we know this is not what the spirit of the holidays is about, here are a few ideas for you and your family to celebrate Thanksgiving for free.
Picture this: a fantastic parade with all your favorite celebrities and professional athletes. The best part? It is completely free. The Annual Winternational Parade will take place on November 28, starting at 10:00 am along 125th Street from NE 6th Avenue to 12th Avenue in North Miami. Dance troupes, bands, and professional floats are just a few of the exciting features. Be sure to get there early to get a great spot! http://www.northmiamifl.gov/celebrate/
First of all, take a walk on the Everglades. Do you want to work for your appetite? Why not take a couple of hours with your friends and family and enjoy nature and the outdoors. After all, South Florida is known for its breathtaking landscape. Since the dry season is approaching, you will get the chance to spot some alligators, manatees, and many bird species migrating.
