Turkey is of course the star of the weekend. Start your vacation weekend in San Diego with your choice of Turkey Trots and eat your way through the main event. You’ll also need the strength, because after Thursday we officially start the holiday season, folks. Be ready. And if you’re not, throw it all away and just go to the Con.

Early birds can hit one of these proud Turks across the county on Thursday:

  • the 2021 O’Side Turkey Trot departs at 6:45 AM from the Oceanside Civic Center, 330 N. Coast Highway. Dress up for the five-mile or three-mile trail and enjoy live entertainment as well. Costs range from $28-50.
  • Father Joe’s Villages Hosts the 20th Annual Thanksgiving 5K at 7:30 AM at Balboa Park Arrive early, at 6:30 AM, for the pre-trot mass. Enjoy cake and photos with Santa and Disney-inspired characters at the post-race party. Adult entrance fees start at $45.
  • The local Rotary Club hosts Fallbrook’s Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot, a 5km run, walk or walk through the Grand Tradition Estate and Gardens, 220 Grand Tradition Way. The cost starts at $45.

You might be thinking about shopping on Friday — and fitness, too. Walk it off by shopping or save some money and go to San Diego County Parks in front of Green Friday and special walks, classes, cleanups and more. Events – at locations such as Old Town, Bonita, Cardiff and Poway – are free, as is parking.

Comic-Con – also good for walking. And people watching. And stay up to date with the latest comic book and genre news.

To remember the past, go to the Comic-Con Museum, which kicks off its soft opening Friday at noon. The Balboa Park Museum, with six permanent exhibits, will have special programming and screenings leading up to its grand opening in 2022. Tickets — general admission will cost $20 — are available online and is sold in the museum.
