The Office Of Mayor Luke Bronin announced Tuesday that the parade scheduled for Saturday, March 14 has been canceled.
“The bottom line is that it’s a lot easier to be smart and aggressive and early than it is to play catch up on the back end. That’s the approach we’re going to take,” said Bronin.
The Greater New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade that was scheduled for this Sunday, March 15 was postponed also due to concerns over the spread of Covid-19.
Earlier Monday, Governor Ned Lamont urged city leaders to cancel big gatherings of more than 100 people.
According to the Office of Mayor Luke Bronin, he had met with the Health Director and Emergency Management Director to determine what to do with the Hartford parade.
