Thanksgiving Day in Ballard

Happy Thanksgiving! Ballard will be pretty quiet today — aside from the thousands who plan to build up an appetite by trotting through Sunset Hill this morning.

The annual Turkey Trot will kick off at 85th and 32nd at 9am, with the 5k-ers to head south on 34th, then back north on Seaview to Golden Gardens. (Here’s the map)
