CENTERVILLE, OH: The Centerville-Washington Park District is hosting a new special event — a Thanksgiving adventure! Find the missing turkeys during an interactive walk on Saturday, November 20 at Forest Field and Bill Yeck Parks. There are two options for your quest, a one-mile paved/limestone walk or a 3.1-mile (5k) adventure hike. For either trek you complete, there will be a fun Thanksgiving-themed prize! The Great Turkey Trek is from noon – 3:00 p.m. Parking is located at Forest Field Park, 2100 E. Centerville Station Rd.

Attendees are encouraged to bring new, unopened, colorful socks to donate to Shoes for the Shoeless. Athletic socks that fit children ages 5 and up are preferred.
