Mother Nature cooperated just in time on Saturday, as the 2021 Southern Door Firefighters Picnic & Parade drew hundreds of people to the small community of Forestville. The parade featured dozens of floats and vehicles right after morning rain showers gave way to clearing skies. Attendees were treated to demonstrations, water fights, games, and live music, along with plenty of food and beverages to keep the masses content and cool on a warm, humid day. Southern Door Fire Chief Rich Olson said the event raised enough money last year to purchase life-saving “Jaws of Life” extrication equipment. He noted that it was great for the community to be able to celebrate together after the fundraising event was only drive-thru last year.
