Look for Us in Detroit on Thursday

On Thanksgiving morning, the Blues will be in Downtown Detroit at Parade Plaza in front of Comerica Park and at the Turkey Trot handing out blue candy canes and holiday greetings. Look for our Healthy Blue Xtras team in blue, of course, and say “hi”! If you haven’t made plans to come downtown, please consider joining us! This year’s parade kicks off at 9:05 a.m., and includes 11 marching bands; eight balloons; four equestrian units; 26 floats, Magic Johnson, Bill Ford Jr., Carrie Cucksey, Michigan’s own HGTV star, and the big man in red himself, Santa Claus!
