Thanksgiving Traditions in Aiken, SC

By
Real Estate Agent with Carolina Real Estate Company

If you are new to the area you may not be aware of all the traditions for Thanksgiving.  You may adopt some or all as new traditions of your own!   Check it out:

For over 90 years, the Aiken community has come together on Thanksgiving morning at 11am for the Blessing of the Hounds.   Walk into Hitchcock Woods and meet at Memorial Gate - a wonderful way to start your Thanksgiving day.

Check out what Bing.com travel had to say about our little tradition!

For the past two years, Aiken Land Conservancy has hosted 'Bagels and Bloodies' at The Aiken County Historical Museum - be sure to stop by ON YOUR WAY to the Blessing :) 

After the Blessing you can join your friends, family, neighbors, associates..... downtown in The Alley for Thanksgiving Dinner.  A free community event, and tradition for several years - One Table.  EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO COME FOR FREE THANKSGIVING DINNER! Everyone :)  Young, old, purple, green, tall, short, rich, poor, democrat, republican...it doesn't matter.  If you want to do something to 'give back', you can bring a canned food item to donate at the event.  For more info: One Table 2011

 

Happy Thanksgiving.  I'm thankful for every day, for every day is a gift.
