Dear Friends, Neighbors and Supporters,
We are disappointed to announce that our annual parade will not take place this holiday season. We made this decision out of respect for the efforts and sacrifices that the Beverly community has made to defeat the Covid-19 pandemic. The parade committee considered many alternatives and modifications to enable the 2020 parade to happen, but the health of our families and neighbors is too important to take risks.
This year’s parade salutes our Front Line & Essential Workers. Although we will not gather on our downtown streets to thank them, we appreciate everything that they continue to do to keep us all safe and healthy.
Missing out on the 2020 celebration gives us an opportunity to appreciate just how much we enjoy our annual march. We’re eager to plan a 2021 celebration that will make up for the gap in our annual tradition. Please stay safe and take care of each other.
