A statement from the WV Memorial Day Parade Committee

The following is a statement issued on Tuesday afternoon from the West Virginia Memorial Day Parade Committee, Inc, concerning this year’s parade:
With great regret, we must announce that due to COVID-19, the restrictions in place for large gatherings, and our concern for the health and safety of all involved, we’ve made the difficult decision to officially cancel the 2020 WV Memorial Day Parade.
Contingency plans will be discussed for a symbolic observance of some kind, if state restrictions allow, but in the event we can do this, any observance would NOT be open for the public.
We hope you all will find a way to honor our fallen on your own this year, and we look forward to seeing you, and continuing this great tradition, in 2021.
