|First the Plungers rush in – then they rush out!
Nantucket’s Thanksgiving Day begins with the “Cold Turkey Plunge” at Children’s Beach when hundreds of stalwart swimmers run into the chilly water – and run right back out again!
The Plunge is a fundraiser to benefit the Weezie Children’s Library at the Nantucket Atheneum and is a bracing way to start your Thanksgiving Day!
You can sip your steamy take-away coffee as you watch the shivering masses from the sidelines! Or, pack your swim gear/wetsuit/costume and join in the fun!

- Company of the Cauldron
- Brant Point Grill
- Nantucket Hotel
- Fifty-Six Union
- And, a little farther away, The Faregrounds Restaurant.
For the rest of the weekend, you have choices – shop, relax, read, walk the beach. Rent a bike to ride to out to the moors or Sanford Farms or Cisco Brewers. Drop in at the Whaling Museum to see the Festival of Wreaths. Take in a movie at The Dreamland or the Starlight…or take a trip with the Wizard!
The Theatre Workshop presents The Wizard of Oz starting November 16 at Bennett Hall, just up the hill from the Brass Lantern. There are performances on Friday and Saturday at 5:30, and Saturday and Sunday matinees at 3.
So come by yourselves or come with friends and family and let the Brass Lantern be your home away from home for the Thanksgiving!
