Ancient Order of Hibernians
St. Joseph, MO
Indefinitely Postponed the 34th Annual
St. Patrick's Day Parade
March 12th, 2020 – The Ancient Order of Hibernians are announcing today the indefinite postponement of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade that was to be held on Saturday March 14th, 2020. This difficult decision was made due to rising concerns over the last 24 hours, including the pronouncement from the World Health Organization that the virus constitutes a pandemic, and guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control. We were also influenced by the many similar, large event gatherings being canceled in our region. Out of an abundance of caution, we feel that we need to take responsibility for containment of the spread and must indefinitely postpone the parade.
A decision to reschedule may be made as circumstances become clearer.
