Hey y’all, Happy Holidays!
As you know, Clapper’s headquarters are located in Plano, Texas. So we thought it would be a good idea to highlight some of our local events for the holidays. We know we have creators all over the world, but we want to really emphasize local venues and events as an effort to support our Texas home.
With this, we also want to encourage you to highlight the events that are happening around you. Make content about local events and let your nearby community knows what is new for the holidays.
Dallas Turkey Trot
The Dallas Turkey Trot is a 5k to 8k running course that happens every Thanksgiving. The course goes through Downtown Dallas making it the biggest trot of the year. This year, the Clapper Team has actually decided to enter the Turkey Trot for the 5K course. We will live-stream while we’re there and show you an inside look at this big Thanksgiving event. Let’s see who’s the first one to get tired! For more information to attend Thursday, 26th go here.
