TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — The 2021 St. Patrick's Day Parade & Festival has been canceled for the second year in a row.
According to event organizers, the cancellation is due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
"The past year has been a difficult one and while we begin to think about the reopening of our community post-COVID, we are patient and take every precaution to ensure the safety of ourselves and others," said the event's President John Murphy.
The annual festival will return in 2022, said Murphy.
