The annual Glen Cove St. Patrick’s Day Parade, run by Glen Cove Parade Inc. scheduled for March 21, has been canceled due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic.
“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,” Glen Cove Parade Inc. wrote in a release. “We look forward, instead, to marching again on March 20, 2022.”
The members of Glen Cove Parade Inc. wrote that they appreciate the continuing understanding and support of the community for its decision, as well as the generous financial response it has received for the St. Vincent DePaul Society, the parade charity chosen by Grand Marshal Gerard Herbert and his aides, Carolyn McGillicuddy and Eric Hill.
