South Williamsport Mummers Parade canceled
Organizers of the South Williamsport Mummers Parade announced on social media Tuesday night that the 2020 parade will be canceled, citing regulatory obstacles in obtaining a permit from the state Department of Transportation.
“It is with great frustration as well as sadness that we announce” the cancellation of the parade, which would have been in its 75th year, the post on Facebook said. “Unfortunately, Governor Wolf and his task force, in cooperation with PennDOT have created an environment of hysteria and COVID-19 regulatory hoops to jump through that make it impossible to enjoy our historic community event.”
Organizers encouraged community members upset with the decision to contact Gov. Tom Wolf’s office.
