Thanksgiving in the Southern Finger Lakes

Thanksgiving is a great time in the Finger Lakes. Take a stroll through downtown to see cute storefronts decorated for fall and stop by the Corning Museum of Glass to get creative yourself with fun seasonal projects. Stay for the weekend to watch the Parade of Lights with your family and kick off the Christmas season featuring shopping deals, promotions, and shop local campaigns like Small Business Saturday and Shop Small Win Big.
