The 2021 South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade has been canceled for the second year in a row, due to state restrictions on the maximum size of public gatherings.
The South Boston Allied War Veterans Council, the organization that runs the parade, released the following statement via Twitter Tuesday:
“Due to ongoing state restrictions limiting outdoor public events to 25 people, the 2021 South Boston St. Patrick's Day / Evacuation Day Parade has been canceled. We look forward to finally seeing you all again in 2022.”
