Ellison Bay To Host Annual Groundhog Day Parade

Will we get an early spring or six more weeks of winter? Either way, Ellison Bay will celebrate Groundhog’s Day in style with its annual parade on Feb. 2.

Cars, people and pets that want to march in the parade should meet at the parking lot of The Vault, 12046 state Highway 42, at 3:30 pm. Larger floats and trucks can meet at the Ellison Bay Post Office, 12055 Garrett Bay Road, at the same time.
