Racing Sausages to participate in Shanty Days

The traditional celebration of the Lake in Algoma returns this weekend with Shanty Days and the famous Racing Sausages for the first time. An estimated 25,000 people have attended the event in the past, which will feature an art show, street fair, live music,  5K Run/Walk and Kids Superhero Fun Run, beach volleyball tournament, car show, parade, and more. Parade organizer Jim Rabas expects another big weekend in Algoma. He says the parade at noon on Saturday is one of the biggest in the area and even caught the attention of the Milwaukee Brewers and its Racing Sausages.



Long-time volunteer Mitch Groessl, who passed away in June, was named the 2022 Shanty Days Honoree. This year’s theme is “Fired Up for 35 years,” and the Shanty Days annual celebration will wrap up on Sunday evening with fireworks over the Algoma Harbor at dusk.
