While the parade is still a go, a reminder that the annual St. Patrick's Day race has been canceled for this year.
Last week we told you that the St. Patrick's Day race was canceled. In a social media post on Tuesday, officials from the CASI (The Center for Active Seniors) St. Patrick's Race announced that next Saturday's race will not happen.
After consulting with the county health department, sponsors, and Board, CASI officials said that they don't feel they are able to provide the high-quality race experience that runners have come to expect.
The 40th St. Patrick's Day Race will be held on Saturday, March 12, 2022.
