Norfolk cancels this weekend’s St. Patrick’s Day parade —

BREAKING: The City of Norfolk has decided to cancel the 53rd annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in Ocean View, which was scheduled for this Saturday.

The city is asking residents to remove any tents or vehicles currently placed along the parade route, as soon as possible.

A city spokesperson said, “This was not an easy decision, but ultimately we have to take into consideration the uncertainty around COVID-19 and its impact on our residents.”  

There were signs earlier Thursday that the parade might be canceled, after participants began to withdraw from the parade.
