“Following discussions with public health officials at the city and at the urging of the Mayor during consultation yesterday and this morning, the Denver St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee has made the tough decision to cancel this year’s parade due to the on-going situation surrounding COVID-19,” Theresa Melaragno, president of the Denver St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, said in a news release.
“The health and safety of parade participants and attendees is our highest priority every year, and the call to cancel the 2020 parade was made out of an abundance of caution to ensure that we are doing our part to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19 to those who join us every year to celebrate this annual tradition,” she said.
Sorry about this, folks. We only got our official acceptance yesterday, and then just found this out earlier today. Things are happening fast.
Oh man this is going to be big! We have a whole fleet of High Rollers ready to take over the Denver St Patrick’s Day Parade and the weather should be great! You’ll know us by the thunderous roar. Calling all High Roller owners – I booked an entry into the parade for all of us. All you have to do is: * Show up * Dress up * Ride like a Shriner!
