The Somerville Saint Patrick’s Parade Committee has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation very carefully and responsibly with the rest of the nation. Planning, executing and the consideration of cancelling a large community event supported by so many volunteers, agencies, municipal and county resources, sponsors, donors, patrons, local businesses and participants working throughout the entire year is a serious decision.
We are in serious times. The Somerville Saint Patrick’s Parade Committee will be cancelling this year’s Parade for the sake of public health and public health resources in our area and after the guidance of our national, state and local public health officials.
This will not stop the Parade Committee from continuing its work. There is much heavy lifting to do in the days ahead and we will be doing this with our borough and county agencies, sponsors, key donors and small businesses who are affected largely by our decision.
This is Somerville’s Parade and we are all so very proud of it. The Parade will be back!!!
Please look forward to further updates on our website https://www.somervillesaintpatricksparade.com/ or Like us on Facebook “Somerville Saint Patrick’s Parade, Inc. This will provide you with the most up-to-date and accurate information directly from the Parade Committee.
Please note, we are not prepared, at this very time, to offer a re-scheduled date because of the complexity of such an event.
Thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.
The Somerville Saint Patrick’s Parade Committee wish you and your families a very happy and blessed Saint Patrick’s Day.
