Participants march down Frederick Avenue during a previous St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in St. Joseph will not be held Saturday, March 14.

Shane McDonald, a member of the St. Joseph Ancient Order of Hibernians, said on Thursday afternoon that after long deliberations the group decided to indefinitely postpone the event because of concerns surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak.
