Hey Covid, let’s stop already.
Yesterday, a spokesperson for the Philadelphia St. Patrick’s Day Observance Association stated the parade would be cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Here is the statement:
After heartfelt consideration, the St. Patrick’s Day Observance Association has made the decision to cancel the 2021 Philadelphia Saint Patrick’s Day Parade and all events related to the parade. This decision was made with significant consideration to the challenges and concerns that we continue to face with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite our love and excitement for our parade and celebration of St. Patrick, the safety and well-being of organizers, volunteers, participants, and spectators is our number one priority at this time. We will continue with great enthusiasm to plan the 250th Saint Patrick’s Day Parade for March 13, 2022 where we will celebrate Saint Patrick, our Grand Marshal Michael J. Bradley, Jr., and the distinguished members of our Ring of Honor. We will partner with Fox 29 to develop and broadcast a special parade program for all to enjoy. More details to come on this.
Thank you for your understanding and be well.
