Special Press Release: Glen Cove 2021 St. Patrick’s Day Parade Cancellation
Glen Cove Parade Inc., which runs the annual Glen Cove St. Patrick’s Day Parade, hereby announces that this year’s Parade, which had been scheduled for March 21, 2021, has been canceled due to the continuing COVID 19 virus situation.
As organizers of the Parade, we feel morally obliged to avoid any chance of endangering our families, friends, guests, and the community at large by continuing with plans for this year’s Parade. We look forward, instead, to marching again on March 20, 2022.
We deeply appreciate the understanding and support of the community for this decision and for the generous financial response we have received to our continuing appeal for support for the St. Vincent DePaul Society, the parade charity chosen by Grand Marshal Gerard Herbert, and his Aides, Carolyn McGillicuddy and Eric Hill.
