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. The Village Green presents a 5K turkey trot and 1 Mile Fun Run – the Gobble On the Green. This new Cashiers holiday tradition returns year after being virtual in 2020.
