Kick off your Thanksgiving holiday with a decades-old tradition that's better than can-shaped cranberry sauce. With turkey hats and silly waddles, the Turkey Trot is a holiday ritual now adopted by thousands of North Texans. Finish the race and you've earned yourself all the pumpkin pie and gluttony you can shake a fork at. Register in person for the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot at Luke's Locker (3607 Oak Lawn Ave.) through November 24. The child-, dog- and in-law-friendly event benefits several YMCA programs and scholarships for disabilities. If turkey trotting isn't your thing, enjoy some stationary activities: clowns, pony rides, bounce houses, live musical entertainment and more. The Trot begins at 9 a.m. Thursday.
