Family, friends go to Dilworth Park to enjoy Thanksgiving evening


PHILADELPHIA (TUSEN) — Thanksgiving 2022 is basically wrapping up. After dinner was ready, many decided to head to Center City to enjoy a beautiful, mild November evening.

For many, their Thursday turkey dinner was just the appetizer for their Thanksgiving Day.

“We just wanted to have fun outside for Thanksgiving,” Ethan Marty said.

After the turkey is carved, many venture out to enjoy the mild Thanksgiving Day weather and burn off some of those calories by strapping on their skates at Dilworth Park.

“We got him the hot chocolate and we got the candy ginger bourbon, so we got some adult beverages,” Jackson said.

“We come every year, it’s a huge tradition,” said Nick Rhyde.
