The annual Thanksgiving game will once again draw thousands of Detroit Lions fans to Ford Field on Thursday – and the team is encouraging fans to arrive early.
Of course, the Detroit Thanksgiving parade and Turkey Trot will also be happening; the parade begins 8:45 AM on Woodward Avenue near Kirby Street and ends on Woodward Avenue near Congress Street.
Additionally, the Turkey Trot 10K starts at 7:30 AM, followed by the Turkey Trot 5K at 8:30 AM. Gates will open at Ford Field at 10:30 AM with kickoff being scheduled for 12:30 PM EST.
Of course, this could all easily be avoided by demanding real change by staying home for the game, but to each their own.
