The Holiday Season Kicks Off this Friday

November 23rd, 2009

Yep, the holiday season is upon us. This Friday is Black Friday. Downtown retailers are sure to try to lure you downtown to take advantage of their once-a-year sales events. However, there is another reason to come downtown this Friday, the Macy’s Holiday Parade. There will be about 25 floats and all of the normal parade trimmings served up this year. The event is scheduled to start at 8:45 a.m. and take about an hour. What better way to start off the holidays than with a parade.

And if you’ve taken the day off, why not treat yourself afterwards to one of our Epicurean Excursions. The tour starts from inside the Heathman Hotel at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and will be serving up a whole lot of fun… as well as some great food and beverage from some of the city’s best artisan producers.
