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.
