One of the most important days to celebrate in the United States is Thanksgiving; a date that brings together family and friends in being grateful for what one has. This year, Thanksgiving will be celebrated on Thursday, November 28th.
In Puerto Peñasco, where many US ex-pats reside, and which receives thousands of tourists, Thanksgiving time can make you feel right at home. With this in mind, several restaurants prepare traditional Thanksgiving dinners so that people from the U.S. feel welcome. Another custom families have adopted is that of booking a resort stay or rental home to celebrate by cooking their own dinner, or having a caterer prepare their food for them.
In addition, you can commemorate Thanksgiving in our beautiful port by joining your favorite people somewhere near the beach, or on a terrace where you can enjoy dinner along with an unsurpassed view.
Historically stemming from the popular retelling of Pilgrims celebrating their first harvest in the New World in 1621 with the Wampanoag Native Americans, Thanksgiving was celebrated as early as 1789 under the first U.S. President George Washington and then established as the 4th Thursday in November by President Abraham Lincoln. A U.S. Congressional resolution in 1941 confirmed Thanksgiving as the last Thursday in November.
