The eclectic Thanksgiving floats you missed from last year will be back on the streets of Jacksonport this year. The Jacksonport Thanksgiving Day Parade took the past year off due to the ongoing pandemic, but it will return to its usual holiday morning slot for its 25th anniversary. Traditionally a joint effort between Gibraltar and Sevastopol students, the event also acts as a fundraiser for a different cause every year. This year, all proceeds will go to benefit the Door of Life Food Pantry in Sister Bay and the family of Baileys Harbor emergency responder Kim Burns. Parade committee member Jill Lautenbach says it is an event for everybody.
While there will be no raffles this year, the parade will still kickoff at 10:30 a.m. where you possibly see it go past three different times depending on where you stand. The event has raised thousands of dollars in the past for Door County families and causes like Feed My People’s Christmas Profile program, Door County Secret Santa, and DoorCancer.
