Thanksgiving became a national holiday in 1863. Andover followed the New England tradition. A description can be found in the Andover Townsman's article, "Enjoying a slice of Thanksgiving's past in Andover," published on November 27, 2014 (p. 10).

The Feaster Five Road Race became a Thanksgiving day tradition beginning in 1988. Approximately 400 runners participated that year. Now, more than 10,000 runners begin Thanksgiving Day with the race.
