St. Patrick’s Day Parade canceled
Fort Myers Beach Mayor Ray Murphy announced the Fort Myers Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be canceled. Murphy, who organizes the parade, said he couldn’t apply for a permit to hold the parade this year “in good conscience” due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“That is not going to happen,” Murphy said. “Hopefully next year will be a better year for everybody for all of the events and hopefully we will get back to normal. I will be with you in spirit that day.”
Last year’s Fort Myers Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade was also canceled due to the pandemic.
