Look what's happening in Delray Beach over Thanksgiving week and weekend

Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving! And after you had your fill of turkey and football, there are many things happening in Delray.

Shop 'till you drop. It's crazy but the stores are offering all kinds of sales and some are even open on Thanksgiving. So if getting up at 4 a.m. to go shopping suits you, you will have no shortage of places to spend your money.

Amid all of the hoopla, don't forget about Delray's beautiful beach. It's beautiful, peaceful and free.
