This Thanksgiving holiday will bring hundreds of past and present Kinstonians together again in our beloved city! The biggest reunion in the city since Labor Day, this weekend will bring people from all over the country to Kinston, NC to enjoy dinner with their families and/or to attend the events happening throughout the city!

Whether you lived up the hill or down the hill...whether you attended Kinston High School or Adkin High School…whether you like hip hop or old school, THERE’S A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE to enjoy! After you get tired of Thanksgiving food, be sure to patronize Kinston restaurants and shops to help bring more revenue to the city!(Click here for a list of restaurants)

Spending Thanksgiving Day elsewhere? No problem! There's still time to make it to Kinston for a weekend full of events. However, if you do plan to be in town, come on out and show your support, even if it's just to say hello!
