There’s not a whole lot going on the day before Thanksgiving, but there will be some action on the ice.

Last Thanksgiving, the Dallas Cowboys hosted a long-irrelevant team (Washington) whose scrambling quarterback had suddenly made them fun to watch. This year, history repeats itself when the Oakland Raiders and Terrelle Pryor come over for the holidays. The Cowboys have taken a beating from AFC West opponents this season, so this is a last chance to get one over on them. The game kicks off at 3:30pm at AT&T Stadium, 1 Legends Way, Arlington. Tickets are $75-500. Call 800-745-3000.

The parade is 2-10pm in downtown Fort Worth. Admission is free, special seating is $9.50. Call 817-336-2787.

If you’re not into the whole Christmas and Hanukkah barrage that we’re about to get, perhaps Buddhism is more your speed.

They will be on display Fri-Sun at Unity Fort Worth, 5051 Trail Lake Dr, FW. Admission is free. 817-423-2965.
