“The 2020 Jupiter/Tequesta annual Holiday Parade has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year would have marked our 44th year of the Jupiter Tequesta Athletic Association hosting this event. Due to the limitations placed upon us from Palm Beach County regarding large gathering, and social distancing restrictions, it is not feasible to produce a parade.
We are profoundly disappointed that we had to take this action in view of the pandemic, but our concerns for the safety, health and wellbeing of our parade participants, spectators and organizers is our number one priority. What makes this so disappointing is that if there ever was a year the community needed this event to kick off the holiday season, 2020 was the year.
I pray that you all stay healthy and safe, and 2021 is a much better year. We look forward to seeing all of you for next year’s parade, December 12, 2021.
