Thanksgiving in Cody – What’s Going On?
Written by Andrew-Rossi on November 24, 2020
Despite the pandemic, Cody residents can be thankful for the number of festivities being offered throughout the community.
Drive-Thru Thanksgiving at Cody Regional Health
Cody Regional Health is offering its traditional Thanksgiving Day meal at the West Park Campus. Rather than the traditional sit-down dinner, all meals will be available via drive-thru. To get a meal, drive up to the hospital’s Monument Entrance (3rd Entrance C) and get in line. Donations are appreciated – all proceeds go to help pay for Thanksgiving 2021.
Drive-thru dinner is available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Powell Community Thanksgiving Dinner has been canceled.
No COVID-19 Testing
Due to the festivities throughout the day, Cody Regional Health will not be conducting its drive-thru testing at the Cody Stampede Rodeo Grounds on Thursday. Testing will resume on Monday, Nov. 30. at 8 a.m.
Stay – Shop – Win!
Black Friday and Shop Small Saturday are being celebrated by the Cody Chamber of Commerce with Stay-Shop-Win! – a promotion aimed at supporting Cody’s small businesses.
Put your name & phone number on a receipt from any downtown Cody business and drop it in the box in front of the Cody Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center. One winner will receive $200 in Cody Bucks and 3 people will win $100 in Cody Bucks.
Winners will be drawn and announced on Tuesday, Dec. 1.
7th Annual Button Bash
For the seventh year, the Button Bash returns to Sheridan Avenue. Purchase a $5 button at the Cody Chamber of Commerce from Nov. 28 to Dec. 22. Find your button’s number at a participating Cody business and win a prize.
Buttons are collectible, featuring art by Breck Martineau of the Cody Country Art League.
Cody Cowboy Christmas
Start the Christmas season by strolling down Sheridan Avenue for the annual celebration and parade from 4 – 8 p.m. In addition to Stay-Shop-Win and the Button Bash, festivities include:
- The annual Advent Service at the Silver Dollar Bar
- A Sheridan Avenue window decorating contest with tours provided by the Cody Trolley Company
- Caroling provided by First Baptist Church, Yellowstone Harmony Chorus, and the Cody High School Band
- A Holiday Scavenger Hunt for kids
The “grand finale” is the Lighted Parade down Sheridan Avenue between 9th and 14th Streets. It starts at 7 p.m.
From everyone at the Bighorn Radio Network, we wish Cody, Park County, and the entire Bighorn Basin a very Happy Thanksgiving.
