The turkey, cornbread dressing, pumpkin pie, football and family time…so many reasons
to love Thanksgiving! Did we mention pie? Each family has its own activities and
traditions to look forward to the holiday. This year The Village Green is adding to that
offering with a 5K Run/Walk turkey trot, Gobble On the Green. The Thanksgiving Day
run will begin at 9 a.m. on Thursday, November 22 at The Village Green Commons on
Frank Allen Road. The 5K will be an enjoyable out and back around Cashiers Lake and
the Kids Fun Run will be through the park. (Note that the 5K will involve some road and
lane closures around the race route, so please drive with caution and attention.
Patience and understanding are appreciated in advance!)
Registration for Gobble On the Green is $30 with a t-shirt while supplies last. A one-mile
fun run for children ages 5-10 years beginning at 9:30 a.m. The fun run is free with

The next day “Christmas On the Green” kicks off the holiday season with an afternoon
and evening of festivities Friday, November 23. Santa and Mrs. Claus will visit with
children of all ages from 2-5 p.m. at the Gazebo of The Village Green at
the crossroads of Highways 64 and 107 in Cashiers. Bring your wishes and a camera
for a photo with the jolly couple. The evening continues with holiday music for the
Cashiers Christmas Tree Lighting celebration from 5-6 p.m. “Christmas
On the Green” will also feature warm drinks and tasty treats, including s-more making
around The Village Green fire pit. The magic holiday sparkle happens when the switch
is flipped to illuminate the beautiful 65-foot spruce in the center of the village of
Cashiers. The 13-acre park in the heart of Cashiers features thousands of twinkling
lights that will make spirits merry and bright.
