Bringing New Thanksgiving Traditions to the Table

New Thanksgiving Traditions
Thanksgiving is approaching. Consider adding these new Thanksgiving traditions into your celebration to shake things up a bit for 2017.

Thanksgiving is approaching, and while your previous holiday traditions are important, it’s always fun to introduce new traditions into the mix. Consider adding these new Thanksgiving traditions into your celebration to shake things up a bit for 2017.

Take Breaks from Technology

Spend more time with your family by having everyone take a sabbatical from their mobile devices over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Participate in Charity Work

Many people this holiday season won’t have adequate clothing, shelter, food, or even a family to spend time with. Do your part in the community by donating, visiting a nursing home, volunteering at a local food bank, or find other opportunities in your area.

Get Creative with Your Tablecloth

Lots of people do creative things to give thanks during Thanksgiving. Why not find your own way to express it – right on your tablecloth? Get some butcher paper and make a fun, personalized tablecloth by having everyone write down what they’re thankful for.

Take a Family Stroll After Dinner

There is nothing quite like quality family time. After everyone’s gotten full off their second or third helping and the drowsiness starts to set in, sometimes a crisp breeze and a leisurely walk is all you need to digest that hefty meal.

Sign Up for a “Turkey Trot”

“Turkey trots” or short 5K or 10K marathons on Thanksgiving are becoming increasingly popular. They’re fun, social, and a great way to burn off all the extra calories you’ll pick up at dinner.

Making new Thanksgiving traditions with your family will give you all memories for years to come. At Fairground Auto Plaza, we hope you have a happy Thanksgiving holiday.

Chevrolet Pumpkin Carving

Chevrolet Pumpkin Carving in Rolla, MO

Pumpkin carving is a fall tradition that many families from around the world take part in. American auto enthusiasts tend to put their own spin on things with car-like creations. Chevrolet has embraced the pumpkin carving tradition with free pumpkin stencils. Chevrolet pumpkin carving will allow you to show your pride this fall!

Chevrolet’s various pumpkin carving stencils combined popular vehicles with a Halloween theme. The Chevrolet Volt appears with bat wings and vampire teeth. The Chevrolet Spark, a small car, is caught in a spider web.

For those who enjoy a sports car design, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray logo is prime for the carving! The Camaro face design is a great choice as well. Carvers who was a simpler style can go with one of the many Chevrolet bowtie insignia stencils.

The Chevrolet pumpkin carving stencils are free. All you have to do is print them off from the Facebook album. Once your creative carvings are done, be sure to share them with us on our Facebook page!

Grab your carving knife, clear the pumpkin of seeds, and get started. Those Chevrolet pumpkins aren’t going to carve themselves.

At Fairground Auto Plaza, we hope to see some of your Chevrolet pumpkin carvings!
