The Newtown Labor Day Parade committee has announced that this year's parade will be canceled. It's the second year in a row that the 60-year old parade has been called off. The pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2020 parade, and the committee said it had been struggling in recent months with a decision for this year. The group said that the time and effort required to execute the event are too much with the short time remaining before Labor Day. The committee does not have enough remaining members or volunteers to pull off what they called a Herculean event and called on people to consider joining the committee or committing to volunteer. The organizing process for 2022 will begin in the fall.
