    Celebrate Thanksgiving in Norwalk - The Waypointe Apts

    Even though it seems like Halloween was just yesterday, Thanksgiving is right around the corner!

    Good thing The Waypointe (and Norwalk, CT in general) is such a good place to celebrate turkey day in style. With festive events, fantastic food shops, and fun decor stores, Thanksgiving 2015 is sure to be one of the best one’s ever for Norwalk residents.

    Read on for our guide on how to celebrate Thanksgiving in Norwalk with style.

    Check out the UBS Thanksgiving Parade Spectacular

    Down the road in nearby Stamford, the UBS Thanksgiving Parade Spectacular will be romping through the Downtown Stamford streets, sharing festive cheer with everyone it meets along the way. It’s one of the largest helium balloon parades in the country with floats of all different kinds. Alongside the familiar balloon characters you’ll also find award-winning marching bands, and much more. Head to Downtown Stamford on Sunday, November 22nd to catch all the fun.

    Find Festive Thanksgiving Decor Ideas in Norwalk

    There is no better time to bust out all your favorite pieces of fall-themed decorations than Thanksgiving. And if you’re not already well stocked with Thanksgiving decor, Norwalk has fun shops that are bursting with festive decor items. Lillian August is a great shop to find seasonal decor items that interior designers love. Alternatively, you can find more Thanksgiving decor pieces at Pier 1 Imports, Crate and Barrel, or Pottery Barn, which are all within striking distance of your Waypointe home.

    Get Your Thanksgiving Food Shopping Done Early

    Make sure to get your food order in early for Turkey Day! If you like your turkeys local, organic, and free-range, head on over to the Connecticut Farm Fresh Express website to get in contact with local Connecticut farmers that will get you the best-tasting turkey you could ever ask for. We recommend the turkeys from Ekonk Hill Turkey Farm or Old Maids Farm.

    If you don’t feel like preparing a whole Thanksgiving dinner and would rather have a professional chef do all the legwork for you, Norwalk is full of options as well. Stew Leonard's is always a firm favorite for Thanksgiving, all you need to do is order online, set your pickup location, and voila--Thanksgiving is done. Fairway Market is also another good option for Thanksgiving catering.

    With these tips, you’re well on your way to having the best Thanksgiving ever in Norwalk, CT.
