WPXI’s annual holiday parade canceled amid COVID-19

The hits just keep on coming due to the global pandemic.

We learned that Pittsburgh’s annual holiday season parade is canceled due to COVID-19.

WPXI announced the decision to cancel the parade today.

The parade, which would have celebrated its 40th anniversary this year, was first organized by longtime department store Kaufmann’s and known as the Celebrate the Season parade.

It then was a product of Macy’s before that department store company pulled out of Downtown Pittsburgh.

Since then, WPXI has organized the parade.

WPXI says it is planning to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the parade later this year.
