CONYERS, GA—The city of Conyers’ “World’s Fastest Growing St. Patrick’s Day Parade” scheduled for Friday, March 17, in Olde Town Conyers is canceled due to forecasted rain and the threat of potentially severe weather.
“We’re very disappointed to cancel this homegrown celebration, but in monitoring the forecast and out of an abundance of caution for those who usually participate and attend, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the parade,” said Director of Public Relations and Tourism Jennifer Edwards.
The World’s Shortest Endurance Run, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Rockdale County, following the parade has also been canceled, as well as the Trucks on the Tracks food truck event scheduled to follow the parade and run.
The Celtic Tavern will still hold its St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the Olde Town Pavilion at 949 S. Main Street from 4-8 p.m. featuring music by The Stratocats, along with festive food and drink specials.
