Thanksgiving Weekend Events In Mother Lode
Murphys, CA — The town of Murphys kicked off Thanksgiving morning with the annual Klassen Klassic Turkey Trot, and more community events are planned today, and through the weekend.
The popular event at Murphys Community Park drew hundreds of energetic runners and walkers after taking a one-year hiatus due to COVID-19 (Click the image box for some photos). The entry fee was a canned good to benefit the Murphys Senior Center.
On Friday there is the return of the historic downtown Sonora Christmas Parade starting at 6pm. At the conclusion of the event, Santa’s elves will be collecting letters for Santa outside of the Clarke Broadcasting studios at 342 South Washington Street. On Friday evening, from 8-9pm, there will be a Christmas Laser Light Show in White Pines.
Throughout Saturday and Sunday there will also be a Sprit of Winter Holiday Marketplace at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds.
