Celebrate Thanksgiving “Detroit Style” With Dream Limousine
The arrival of Autumn months delivers milder weather, the arrival of fall colors, cooler temperatures and an attitude of gratitude found during late November. While it’s common to go around the table and offer what we’re most grateful for on Thanksgiving, there’s plenty of other ways to celebrate this red-letter date during this thankful season “Detroit Style.”
A Detroit Turkey-Day Football Tradition
Before we enjoy devouring a dopamine-delivered, family-favorite meal, football fans are often either glued to their TV sets to watch holiday football-favorite match-ups. Devoted supporters of their teams will venture out to see a couple of local, classic games between rivalries played on this day. For Detroit Lions fans, Thursday, November 28th, 2019 marks the 80th anniversary of the Thanksgiving Day Game with a matchup against long-time division foe “Da Bears.”
At Ford Field, parking is extremely limited and many fans choose to party and tailgate in the city streets instead of inside of the stadium’s lot. For this reason, many fans choose to use platforms like the Dream Limousine Shuttle Service to safely deliver fans to the game without the hassle of figuring out who will be the designated driver, struggling to find a sweet parking space, getting to the gate and then searching to locate the vehicle later on after the game.
