City of Aiken’s Annual Thanksgiving Story Time

Monday, November 7, 2022

The City of Aiken Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department will host Thanksgiving Story Time on Tuesday, November 15, at 4:00 PM on the lawn of Rye Patch, 100 Berrie Road SW.

Children ages 8 and under can enjoy Thanksgiving-themed stories by Patrice Johnson. This event is free and open to the public. Every family in attendance will receive a book to take home to encourage a lifelong love of reading. In addition, complimentary snacks will be available. An adult must accompany all children.

Our Thanksgiving Story Time would not be possible without the support of our fantastic sponsor Aiken McDonald’s. If you are interested in sponsoring this program, please contact Amber Coffey.

In inclement weather, this event will be moved inside of Rye Patch. Please call the City of Aiken Rain Out Hotline at 803-643-4661, the City of Aiken PRT social media accounts, or download the City of Aiken Explorer app to notify you instantly. You will need to sign up and enable notifications.

For more information about this event, please call 803-642-7650 or contact Amber Coffey, Recreation Program Coordinator
