NUTLEY, NJ - The Nutley Irish American Association (NIAA) canceled the 2021 St. Patrick's Day parade due to COVID-19 concerns. 

The annual event, traditionally the first St. Patrick's Day parade in the state, has also been the largest and best attended parade in the township of Nutley for more than 40 years. 

The officers and trustees of the NIAA made the decision after considering the health and safety of the participants in the parade as well as the crowds who come out each year to see it.
