This year’s Groundhog’s Day Parade in Ellison Bay is moving to an earlier timeslot. February 2nd is a Sunday and according to Mickey Rasch of Door County North, it shares a spot on the calendar with a very famous championship game in 2020.
The event normally steps off at 4 PM and can draw upwards of seven floats plus other groups and marchers. Afterward, the congregation heads to the Mink River Basin for “groundhog stew.” Name aside, the recipe does not actually call for the inclusion of groundhog in any capacity.
