Three things to do this weekend

AUTUMN OWENS Twitter @aowensETnews

Thanksgiving is over and as you make your way out of a turkey-induced slumber, hit the road because there is plenty of fun to be had this weekend! TGIF

1. Black Friday shopping

Walmart will offer deals on electronics, games, movies and more. Bealls will have great prices for toys, appliances and footwear. Hastings will have instruments, speakers and accessories on sale to name a few. So start your Christmas shopping this weekend - and keep it local.

2. Memphis March 5K

Join a run for a good cause, and enjoy a BBQ sandwich afterwards at Greens Creek Methodist Church Saturday morning. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and at 9:30 a.m. a one-mile fun run will take place. The 5K will immediately follow. There will be bounce houses for the kids and entertainment by L.D. Whitehead. All proceeds go to March of Dimes in memory of Memphis Rein Magin.

3. Fort Worth’s Parade of Lights

It’s a little bit of a drive, but the Parade of Lights in Fort Worth comes only once a year. On Saturday, see the enormous Christmas tree shining bright and enjoy the parade, music, activities and holiday shopping in downtown. At 5:30 p.m. cowboy Santas will ride around collecting toys for children in need and at 6 p.m. the parade will kick off. The fun continues until 10 p.m.
