The 2020 Memorial Day Parade in Hamden has been canceled amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Hamden Mayor's Office announced the cancellation in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and due to closures and event limitations in the state.
"While unfortunate, the cancellation of the parade is occurring for the benefit of Hamden's public health and the safety of our residents," town officials said.
The parade was scheduled to be held on May 25.
The town plans to celebrate Memorial Day in a virtual way with a proclamation celebrating veterans from Hamden and across the nation.
"The town thanks the Veterans Commission and Parade Committee for their dedicated work on this year's parade and looks forward to a strong and vibrant return in the years to come," town officials added.
