Before you settle in for a day of Thanksgiving feasting and football, head to the 19th annual Scheels Turkey Trot for a large serving of healthy family fun. Scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. on November 23, 2017 at Scheels and Sparks Marina, this annual running and walking event is a great way to burn calories and give back to the community.  Por Favor Note: Para más información en este evento, por favor llame al (775) 353-2376 y pregunte por Jackie o manden un correo electrónico al recinfo@cityofsparks.us.
