Hard to believe, that for a second year in a row, there will be no St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Denver. The parade, of course, has been canceled due to Covid-19.

The committee board of directors made the decision stating, “unlikelihood that a parade will be able to be held safely or legally in Denver in any capacity in the coming months.”

In a release from the committee, board member Elizabeth Price remarked,  “It takes many months of planning and hundreds of volunteer hours to put on the safe, fun parade that we produce for our city and state each year. In addition, the parade costs thousands of dollars to organize. We cannot, in good conscience, tie up these resources for an event that is likely to be cancelled due to the pandemic and the city restrictions surrounding it.”
