It’s Thanksgiving weekend. The turkey leftovers are in the fridge. You have a house full of relatives. The kids are bored. The malls are jammed. And you ate so much that trekking through shopping centers is as daunting as climbing Kilimanjaro. Turf Paradise is here to help.
A trip to the Phoenix racetrack has become a holiday tradition. Turf has three days of exciting and inexpensive fun where you can watch and wager on live horseracing.
Grandstand admission is free Friday. That’s gratis, zip, nada. Turf Paradise understands not everyone likes to make a mad dash to the malls. Instead why not watch thoroughbred horses and quarter horses make a mad dash to the finish line. And while you’re there you can make a few bets as well. And there is $2 draft beer. So grab those house guests and take them to the track. Buy them some cold beers. You don’t have to tell them it cost you next to nothing. And ladies if the lure of holiday shopping is irresistible; drop off your spouse at Turf Paradise. Think of it as husband day care.
It’s now the Saturday after Thanksgiving and you failed to take our advice about Friday. You’re exhausted and frustrated that your favorite store ran out of that must have item that you don’t have. Once again Turf Paradise is here to help. We’re celebrating the Saturday after Thanksgiving with a full card of horseracing, family friendly bounce house inflatables, live music, and free sweatshirts for the first 3,500 paid admissions. Grandstand admission is just $2. Kids 16 and under get in free. The draft beer is still just $2 because we don’t believe in penalizing anyone who missed the fun on Friday.
Sunday Dollar Day
It’s now the Sunday after Thanksgiving, and you still haven’t managed to get off the couch and get to the track. Perhaps you have been binge watching old episodes of the Walking Dead or arguing with your brother-in-law about gluten. We won’t hold it against you. Sunday is Dollar Day. Grandstand admission is just a dollar. Popcorn is just a dollar. So are hotdogs, sodas, ice cream and programs. And just to show there’s no hard feelings; draft beer is still just $2. And while you’re having all that fun you can watch and wager on live horse racing.
Turf Paradise General Manager Vince Francia said, “Thanksgiving weekend doesn’t have to be hectic and expensive. You can spend it at Turf Paradise, where the horses go fast and a dollar goes far. ”
Turf Paradise opened its doors in 1956 and has operated at the same location (19th Avenue and Bell) ever since making it Arizona’s first sports franchise.
