Okay, so I admit it.  Every year one of my New Year’s resolutions is always about fitness.  And, if you turn on a TV or read just about any news or gossip publication while in line at the market you will not escape their annual focus on health and fitness.  If it’s January, it must be time to start that exercise routine, loose the holiday pounds or start focusing on healthy eating habits.

For those of you new to Lake Norman or considering relocating here, you will be happy to know that Lake Norman has an incredible variety of fitness facilities, gyms and parks for every level/age and lifestyle.  Even during this crazy arctic cold spell there are plenty of ways to fight going stir-crazy!

Charlotte’s 62nd Annual Carolinas’ Thanksgiving Day Parade is HUGE!

 Charlotte's Thanksgiving Day Parade

 Coming from Pasadena CA, home of the Rose Parade, you would think I might know that Charlotte has been hosting the fourth largest Thanksgiving Day Parade in the US since 1947.  I truly don’t know how this exciting annual gathering of both Carolinas that is said to touch up to half a million people from 22 county metro areas escaped my radar screen!

So, if you are looking for a great way to spend  this Thanksgiving, I would highly recommend that you head to Uptown Charlotte by 10:00am this Thursday, November 26, 2009.

To learn more about the line-up for the parade and the event sponsors and details, go to: Charlotte’s 2009 Thanksgiving Day Parade or Charlotte’s got a lot.  You can even see the parade route.  They have promised that they will be “marching down Tryon Street rain or shine.

As part of the effort to “greening” the parade, organizers are encouraging folks to take the light rail rather than driving uptown. (Of course, those of us in the Lake Norman area don’t have this option….yet).

Best wishes to you all and I hope everyone of you has a very Happy Thanksgiving!
