Photo of the week: "Throwback Thanksgiving"

Duluth is such a photogenic city; why not share the pictures you take? This coming week again, Lake Voice is collecting content based on a theme we choose for our Photo a Week Project. Each week is a different theme and at the end of the week we choose a winner and share your photo on our own social media sites. The point is to capture Duluth in as many photos that fit each category and to get our readers and other community members involved.

In 1621, the colonists and Indians shared a three-day celebratory feast after a successful corn harvest. It wasn't until 1863 that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November. Today, people everywhere celebrate Thanksgiving by gathering with family, feasting on turkey and stuffing, and sharing what they are thankful for. Although there are many Thanksgiving traditions, each gathering is unique. We want to hear about how you and your family celebrate and see the throwback pictures of this great holiday.

This week’s theme:
