[ARCHIVED] St. Patrick's Day Parade Canceled

Norwalk Mayor Harry W. Rilling released the following statement on March 10, 2020 announcing the cancelation of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which was scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2020 in Norwalk, Conn.:

“The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is a wonderful Norwalk event and is something our community looks forward to each year. Unfortunately, it cannot move forward this weekend. With multiple parades being canceled in the area, the expected attendance at our parade has certainly increased. While the current risk in Norwalk is low, we must consider the health of first responders, residents, and visitors who staff, attend and march in the parade. Our top priority is keeping everyone safe and healthy and preventing potential community spread. While it’s certainly disappointing to cancel this event, it is the prudent decision given the uncertainty around COVID-19 and how quickly the situation can change. I wish everyone a safe, healthy, and enjoyable St. Patrick’s Day Weekend.”
