The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is in full swing, and we’re busy gearing up for one of our favorite events of the year—Detroit’s annual America’s Thanksgiving Parade!

Absopure has had a long history with The Parade Company’s America’s Thanksgiving Parade. For nearly 20 years, we’ve proudly provided our water to parade marchers, volunteers and event staff. We also sponsor the world-famous Turkey Trot event before life-sized balloons and fancy floats start strolling down the streets of Detroit, by hydrating runners and supplying recycling boxes to help keep the city’s streets clean.

If you’ll be watching the live event this Thursday, keep your eyes open for the Absopure Model T. Third generation owner, William Patrick Young, will be leading the Model T section of the parade with our classic delivery truck. The vintage Ford Model T was the first automobile used to deliver Absopure bottled water and this year it’s sporting a Pure Michigan flag to kick off a new partnership with the Pure Michigan brand for 2014.

As a 105 year-old company with deep roots in Detroit, we’re honored to be part of one of Detroit’s most historic and beloved traditions. Because we know firsthand how much fun it is to attend this exciting event, we gave away a Thanksgiving Day Parade VIP experience to one lucky fan. Congratulations again to Kelly L. from Detroit. We hope you enjoy spending the day with family and friends at the America’s Thanksgiving Parade.
