Every year on the Friday after Thanksgiving (November 26), all of us at SpinSheet, PropTalk, and FishTalk celebrate Blue Friday and you can, too. It’s simple.

Friday, November 26, the day after Thanksgiving, celebrate Blue Friday with us by spending time on or near the water.

Here’s what you need to know:

What is Blue Friday?

It’s a special day to spend time on or along any of our local waterways. It always falls on the day after Thanksgiving.

How do I participate?

Get outside and enjoy being on the water or taking in a water view from your local shoreline.

Bundle up

Late November can be chilly in the Chesapeake region, and many of us don’t go out boating when the water is cold. But, you can still get out and stroll along the shoreline.

Who should participate?

Everyone! Bring along your out-of-town guests and show off the beauty of the Bay and its tributaries or walk along the beach if you head down to the ocean.

What else should I know?

Some of our readers carry bags to collect trash or debris along the water’s edge. We encourage you to take pictures and share them on social media with #BlueFriday. You may also send them to [email protected], and we’ll share them with our readers. And if you also want to do some holiday shopping, make sure to buy from PropTalk advertisers and keep the Chesapeake marine community thriving!
