The City of Midwest City, along with the Midwest City Chamber of Commerce, announced today that the annual Veteran’s Day Parade scheduled for November 11 has been postponed due to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Based on the advice of local medical professionals and the rising hospitalization numbers, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the parade. It’s very disappointing not to have the parade on Veteran’s Day, but we are committed to the long-term safety and health of the participants, the attendees, and our staff,” said Dukes.
“I want the public to know that the decision was not taken lightly. We know the Veteran’s Day Parade is a cherished event in our city. We are a patriotic community and we love celebrating our veterans and the military members of our community,” Dukes said.
“We will continue to monitor the data in our community and plan to bring back this much-loved celebration as soon as circumstances will allow,” Dukes added.
