Happy Thanksgiving!

I think that’s all the introduction to fun we need this weekend. So, enjoy stuffing your face, relaxing on the couch and catching some football. Oh, and hanging with family, of course.

■ Even if you don’t have close family or friends in town, you can still enjoy a Thanksgiving feast with people who care.

St. Michael Catholic Church, 678 School St., opens its doors to you for a great meal from 4 to 6 p.m. today.

So head on over there to get your fill.

■ Get your running shoes on because it’s time to shop!

Black Friday calls all die-hard shoppers looking to score the most sought-after items this Christmas.

So, set your alarm, grab your ads and strategize your plan of attack.

■ You can also get your shop on at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265 craft sale.

The sale, which features only handmade items, runs from noon to 7 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the post, 419 E. Victory Way.

■ Bundle up and prepare for a good show.

The annual Parade of Lights begins at 6 p.m. Saturday in downtown Craig and will feature a string of lighted floats featuring familiar faces and some fun costumes.

The parade begins at Craig Middle School and travels south on Yampa Avenue then west on Victory Way to Centennial Mall.

■ Sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what you want for Christmas.

Santa Claus will be at Centennial Mall, 1111 W. Victory Way, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and every other Saturday leading up to Christmas.

■ This weekend proves to be a favorite time to decorate for the Christmas season.

Stock up on decorations at our local stores, and snag the perfect live tree.

The Lions Club is selling trees beginning Saturday in the lot next to McDonald’s, 1080 W. Victory Way, and Tunies & Such, 690 Yampa Ave., has trees in, too.

It’s the perfect weekend to get in the merry spirit and deck the halls.

■ After all the eating, you might feel like playing with your food instead.

Enter the Annual Downtown Gingerbread House Contest, which has a deadline of Dec. 3.

To pay your $6 entry fee and get a special board to display your gingerbread house, call or visit The Kitchen Shop, 577 Yampa Ave., 824-8148, or KS Kreations, 523 Yampa Ave., at 824-2151.

■ West Theatre continues to show “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” and also now has “Tangled,” which began playing Wednesday.

Redbox has “Eat Pray Love” and “Sex and the City 2” — two movies that fell short of my super-high expectations — plus “The Expendables” out this week.
