Thanksgiving brings together family and friends and local authorities are reminding to be safe during this time of celebration.
As college students return home, some for perhaps the first time, the night before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest at local liquor establishments. Clinton Police Chief Ben Lowers is imploring anyone going out Wednesday night to be safe.
If you're going to be out and about shopping on Friday, Chief Lowers says you want to do simple things like be mindful of your surroundings, know where you parked your vehicle, and carry a debit or credit card if possible.
Winter weather isn't out of the question wherever you may be traveling this time of the year so a winter emergency kit in your vehicle is important. Chief Lowers also recommends being dressed appropriately if you're traveling in cold weather.
