MORRISTOWN, NJ - The 2020 St. Patrick's Day Parade was canceled in March due to the pandemic but organizers were hopeful that the parade could and would be rescheduled for September. 

The rescheduled parade was slated for September 19, however, that too has now been canceled. 

Last week the Trustees of the Morris County St. Patrick's Day Parade met and decided to cancel the September parade "in light of the continued struggle with the global pandemic".
