One of the first community events cancelled in 2020 in Hastings when the outbreak of Covid-19 hit was the 16th annual South Jefferson Street - St. Patrick’s Parade. WBCH Radio, which organizes the event, has had to postpone any plans for a St. Patrick’s Parade again this year.
“It was one of the first events cancelled last year, and we certainly hope it’s one of the last events cancelled in 2021” said Steve Radant, General Manager of WBCH. “We waited as long as we could to see if anything changed, and consulted with Hastings Police Chief Jeff Pratt and the Barry-Eaton District Health Department before making the final decision. Unfortunately, the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions from the Governor and MDHHS, in effect until at least March 29th, prohibit us from holding a public gathering that large.”
“But let’s all BE POSITIVE, WEAR GREEN and THINK SPRING!”
