A local Thanksgiving Day parade, art competitions, and gallery walks on the cheap

On Thursday, Caramel is hosting a photo exhibit, silent auction, and art sale featuring the work of local artists and photographers. All proceeds benefit Loaves and Fishes, a program that serves meals to low-income and homeless individuals in DC’s Mount Pleasant and Columbia Heights neighborhoods. 6 to 8:30. Free.

Earl Greyhound, whose new three-song EP is out on Thursday, plays the Black Cat that same night along with guest Knights on Earth. Be one of the first to pick up your copy at 9 PM. $10.

The Sundance Audience Award-winning documentary Waste Land follows a Brazilian-born artist as he attempts to create portraits using material from the world’s largest landfill. It screens at the Hirshhorn Museum on Thursday at 8. Free.

Head to Georgetown Gallery Gaze on Friday evening, when participating galleries stay open late and showcase visiting and local artists.

There’s an Epic Dance Party on Friday at the Rock & Roll Hotel, featuring tunes courtesy of DJ Doc Rok. 9:30; free.

It may not have Al Roker or the Rockettes, but Montgomery County’s Thanksgiving Parade is a good match for its big brother up in New York City. The Saturday-morning parade features 50-foot balloons, floats, and live entertainment. If you can make it out of bed in time, catch it along Georgia Avenue at Sligo Avenue in Silver Spring. 9:30 to noon; free.

The Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington is hosting the Jewish Folk Arts Festival this Sunday. There are workshops, performances, dancing, food, art, and more. Click here for tickets. Noon to 6; $10.
