Buford, Ga. – October 27, 2016 – For a stress-free and entirely memorable Thanksgiving 2016, Lanier Islands is rolling out the red carpet to couples, friends and families who want to forego the hassle of preparing the holiday meal and picking up afterward in favor of a festive outing with all the “trimmings.” In addition to a Thanksgiving feast of epic proportions expertly prepared by the Islands’ culinary team on Thursday, November 24, the Southern lakeside destination will play host to its renowned holiday light show, a flurry of fun at LanierWorld Winter Adventure, a trio of NFL matchups on the five-story high Spectacular Screen and appearances from the Big Guy himself… Santa Claus for what promises to become a beloved new tradition for many and a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season.

“We invite our guests to skip the hours of cooking and cleaning that’s often associated with Thanksgiving and make the scenic drive over the Lanier Islands’ bridge to let us take care of everything,” said Grier Todd, VP of Hospitality for Lanier Islands. “Our talented chefs will prepare a cornucopia of holiday classics paired with a few feats of culinary creativity. As always, there will be a kids table featuring all of our pint-sized patrons’ favorites, and a dessert station that is likely to have more than one guest considering skipping the main courses in favor of going right for the sweet stuff.”
