St. Louis, Nov. 21, 2019 – Fenton, Missouri-based, UniGroup, the parent company of America’s #1 most trusted brand, Mayflower Transit, is proud to participate in the 2019 St. Louis Thanksgiving Parade “Christmas in St. Louis” to be held on Market Street at 8:45 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 28 – Thanksgiving Day. The parade float will entail a ¼ replica of the original Mayflower ship that first sailed to the New World in 1620.
