There’s certainly no shortage of opportunities for the time-honored activities that kick off the winter holidays in Austin this year. On the other hand, a couple of activities offer the chance to take a break in the traditional face-stuffing and sales-shopping to do some moving and some giving, not to mention some very slow running of the festive floats—that would be the annual ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot on Thursday and the Chuy’s Children Giving to Children Parade Saturday. (The weekly SFC Farmers Market will also take place as usual Saturday.)
