With the state of Washington fully reopening last June 30, Lake Chelan residents now have more ways to enjoy the coming Thanksgiving holiday.
Here are some great ideas for having a wonderful Thanksgiving, even with the limitations brought about by the pandemic.
Pub Trivia at Stormy Mountain Brewing is actually a weekly event. However, this event becomes special on November 24 – the eve of Thanksgiving – as its organizers are preparing loads of prizes and surprises for attendees. This can be a great opportunity to bond with the family while putting your smarts to the test.
Campbell Resort’s Thanksgiving brunch buffet is practically a tradition for many Lake Chelan families. Save yourself from the hassles of cooking and celebrate Thanksgiving at Campbell’s on November 25 from 9:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. While the resort has not yet released this year’s menu, the mouthwatering dishes served in past Thanksgivings — such as brined and smoked turkey, maple-bourbon-glazed ham, and a wide-encompassing salad — hold the promise of an exciting menu for this upcoming holiday.
Enjoy a picnic by the lake
Summer is not the only season for picnicking at Lake Chelan, as most public parks that border the water are open all year round. After your meal, enjoy various activities here like swimming, boating, jet-skiing, fishing, and even hiking. You can even choose to camp for the night at the Lakeshore RV Park where dining and shopping establishments abound.
Host a backyard Thanksgiving party
Lake Chelan enjoys reasonable outdoor temperatures even in late fall, so if you plan to have family around, how about holding Thanksgiving dinner in your backyard? Although transmission potential is low in fully open spaces, it’s still best to maintain social distancing. Family members can still enjoy a hearty meal and good conversation even when they aren’t sitting close to each other. And do make sure you have cleaning wipes and sanitizers ready.
Initiate a Thanksgiving video conference call
Teleconferencing apps aren’t just for business meetings. Apps like Zoom, Google Meet, and Skype also allow you to enjoy the company of your family even if they can’t come over for the holidays. Some apps even have built-in games that families can play together. If cooking is an important aspect of your Thanksgiving, you can keep a video call open as you share recipes and prepare the dishes along with the other family chefs.
Send out thank you cards
Although sending out holiday cards is more of a Christmas activity, any time is always a good time to express your gratitude. Consider writing personal thank you cards to those nearest and dearest to you. Your heartfelt message can serve as a fitting introduction to the festive season and lift up the spirits of those who may be feeling down because of the pandemic.
