Local artists are needed to capture the look of Gobble on the Green.

The turkey, cornbread dressing, pumpkin pie, football and family time…so many reasons to love about Thanksgiving! 

Did we mention pie? 

Each family has its own activities and traditions to look forward to the holiday.  This is the second year The Village Green is offering a 5K Turkey Trot and 1-Mile Fun Run – The Gobble On the Green. 

The Thanksgiving Day 5K Run/Walk will begin at 9:00 A.M. with the Fun Run starting at 10:30 A.M. on Thursday, November 28, at The Village Green Commons in beautiful Cashiers.
