The Yonkers St. Patricks Day Parade Committee has canceled this years parade. Originally scheduled for March 21st the committee stated they will hold the parade on September 19th, 2020. In a post on their web site the committee issued the following statement:
"It is with an abundance of caution and care for our community, and as a result of medical advice in the midst of this health crisis that we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Yonkers St Patrick’s Day Parade from March 21st to Sept 19th, the halfway to St Patrick’s day point.
The mass will be celebrated on Sept 19th before the parade.
Our 1st commitment is to the safety of both our marchers and our spectators and we look forward to celebrating this great parade 6 months from now.
We will hold the parade dinner on Saturday Sept 12th instead of this Sat March 14th.
This was an extremely difficult decision for us and we ask that you look forward to Sept and stay safe & well"
The executive board of the Yonkers St Patrick's Day Parade
