4 Family-Friendly Things To-Do during Thanksgiving Weekend
Go ahead. Dream of that roasted Turkey and sweet pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving is a short week away and that traditional dinner is the only thing getting us through the day.
This gratitude inspired holiday also means spending time with family and friends. Plan a wonderful weekend with the fun activities and events happening in our community from holiday shopping to enjoying museum festivities.
We gathered local events happening that you can enjoy with your favorite people during the rest of November.
Here in Pittsburgh, the holidays don’t truly begin until Phipps opens its doors to their Holiday Magic Winter Flower and Light show! This indoor and outdoor exhibit opens the day after Thanksgiving but tickets are on sale now.
As a family event, Phipps pulls out all the stops! Your eyes will gaze among millions of twinkle lights and gorgeous flowers. Phipps will also have Santa visits, family fun evenings, and musical entertainment on select dates.

You won’t have to wait very long to enjoy the shopping season. Henne Jewelers on Walnut Street is introducing a new collection, Sloane Street Trunk Show, on Friday, November 22nd and Saturday, November 23rd.
If you’re looking to get something incredibly special as a gift, visit one of Pittsburgh’s oldest and best jewelers. You can’t go wrong with their selection.
Get your shopping on! After all, it is the shopping season for big deals and discounts. Instead of taking the fun out of the holidays and using Amazon, Ace Hotel is hosting one awesome holiday event called Pittsburgh Pickers Vintage Market.
Pittsburgh Pickers is an event series that highlights the local vintage community. The event is totally free with over 20 different vendors. Visit the Facebook Event page to see specific vendors and other details.
The Frick Pittsburgh is another locals tradition during the holiday season. See a grand Victorian home decorated for the season as almost all items and furniture are original.
You’ll also discover local history and hear stories about one of Pittsburgh’s wealthiest families. Holidays at the Frick begins on November 21st. Visit the official site to learn more about ticket details.
