The annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration is slated for Saturday, March 14, but due to the global health concerns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, all events scheduled for the day have been postponed. This includes the Lucky Leprechaun 5K, the Ancient Order of Hibernians St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and the Main Street Block Party.
Events will be rescheduled for a later date.
“City leaders along with leadership from the partnering organizations have decided it is in the best interest of the public and our city employees to delay the annual celebration,” said Mayor Mark Eckert. “We want everyone to remain safe and use good judgement when managing our daily lives in the current environment.”
