After the Thanksgiving festivities are over, families will want to find other ways to enjoy time together over the holiday weekend.

In Placer County, there are a ton of things to see and experience. For families looking to get out of the house on the weekend after Thanksgiving, here are some things to consider checking out.

Neighborhood Christmas Light Displays

Pile the family in the car and head out on a mission to see some neighborhood Christmas lights. We have put together a list of some of the must-see neighborhood light displays in Placer County. There also will be a Christmas tree lighting at Central Square in Auburn on Nov. 25.

Holiday Gallery Gift Shop

There will be hundreds of unique gifts made by local artists and artisans on display starting on Nov. 25 at the Holiday Gallery Gift Shop in Lincoln. So, if you would like to give a special gift of art this holiday season, this is where you need to be! The Holiday Gallery Gift Shop is located at 580 Sixth Street.

Foothill Farmers’ Market

Spend a Saturday out with the family at this Old Town Auburn staple. If you have recovered from your Thanksgiving meal, pick up some fresh fruit, vegetables, honey, eggs and more at this great community event. It takes place from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Nov. 25 at Auburn-Folsom Road at Lincoln Way in Auburn. More information here.

See a Movie

Checking out a movie is a great way to relax and get out with the family on Thanksgiving weekend. And if you are tired of cooking, check out Studio Movie Grill in Rocklin, where you can get food served to you in your seat while you watch your movie! Many families will probably be checking out the latest Pixar movie, Coco, this weekend. See movie times at Studio Movie Grill here.


Consider volunteering to help out those less fortunate. Placer County has some great charitable organizations, such as Placer Food Bank and The Gathering Inn.
