Thanksgiving Day with kids!?!? Ideas please!

Hey all, we will be in NOLA Tuesday night through Saturday morning. We have a few things we know we will do on Wed, Fri and even Sat before we leave. But Thanksgiving day is proving to be a difficult find. We will be staying at the Country Inn and Suites and don't want to be cooped up all day with an eight and twelve year old. Any ideas or suggestions are absolutely welcome! Thank you guys in advance!

How about watch the Bayou Classic parade, which will end at the French Market (open all day) where you can browse and find some souvenirs. http://www.frenchmarket.org/featured-event/

There are also holiday happenings at Fulton Street next to Harrah's: harrahsneworleans.com/shows/miracle-on-fulto…

Might look at Celebration in the Oaks for a light display for the family. It is in City Park right by the New Orleans Museum of Art. Check their schedule for family activities as well as I think they have outdoor movies for the family. I believe that there is a Christmas Market at Palmer Park which could be fun depending on the ages of the kids. Also there is this family oriented holiday event: http://christmasinthedistrict.com/. This blog has a massive list of ideas: neworleansmomsblog.com/2013/…

Hope that helps!
