No Fisherman’s Feast. No Festival Betances. No Pride parade. No Pops July 4th Spectacular.


Boston Mayor Marty Walsh on Friday announced there would be no large gatherings in the city this summer, citing the ongoing need to protect against the spread of the coronavirus.

“I’m announcing today that parades and festivals will not take place this summer in the city of Boston, up to and including Labor Day on Sept. 7,” Walsh said during a press conference on Friday.

No events that would involve more than 10 people, or that could draw a crowd, should be planned, the city said.
