It’s also time to stuff our face with turkey and all the garnishes and top it off with a tasty piece of pumpkin pie.

This means that some businesses and services will be closed in Oakville to commemorate the holiday. The COVID-19 pandemic can also result in the closure of places that would normally be open.
