Parade Canceled Due to COVID-19
We regret to cancel this year's World's Fastest Growing St. Patrick's Day Parade due to what is currently known about the transmission and severity of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) as relayed to officials at the city of Conyers from the state, Rockdale County’s Emergency Management Agency Director Dan Morgan, and the Gwinnett Newton Rockdale Health Departments.
The World's Shortest Endurance Run sponsored by the Rotary Club of Rockdale on March 17 at 5:30 p.m. has also been canceled, as has the new addition of Trucks on the Tracks, food trucks that were to be in the area for the festivities.
Join in the fun at the St. Practice Day Street Party and St. Patrick's Day Street Party hosted by Olde Town Merchants!
The merchants of Olde Town will continue with their street party plans with Commercial Street scheduled to be closed to through traffic the evening of March 17 featuring music by Midnight Cruzer.
Commercial Street will also be closed to traffic on Saturday, March 14 for a pre-St. Patrick’s Day event dubbed “St. Practice Day” starting at 2 p.m. The festivities are sponsored by the Celtic Tavern, Sweet Treat Depot and Tin Plate with live entertainment by local favorites The Stratocats, along with drink and food specials.
