The Duluth Parks and Recreation Department invites members of the public to attend a free "turkey bowl" and skating party from 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday at Essentia Health Duluth Heritage Center, 120 S. 30th Ave. W.

Participants can join in a frozen-turkey bowling competition and a drawing for free turkeys. The event also will provide an opportunity to meet and greet local military service members, as well as a station where people can make holiday cards for people stationed overseas.

The Boys and Girls Club will lead an activity asking people what they're thankful for, as well. While the event is free, participants are requested to donate a non-perishable food item in support of local food shelves.
