Before indulging in their Thanksgiving meal, some community members took part in the turkey trot at Laguna Lake Park in San Luis Obispo.
Friends and family members gathered at the Laguna Lake Golf Course for a fun run and walk.
One family from Morro Bay said this was a great way for them to earn their turkey dinner.
"It's so fun to be active and be outside and enjoy the ocean and the mountains, it's perfect," says participant Lauren Sheely.
Participants were able to chose from a 2.5K run or a 5K run.
Runners who brought a non-perishable item to the event earned a free child entry.
