Brick officials announced Tuesday that the township’s annual Memorial Day parade has been canceled.

“Due to measures preventing the spread of Coronavirus and in accordance with safe practices promulgated by Governor Murphy’s executive orders, this year’s Memorial Day Parade has been canceled,” an announcement from the township said.

The parade, a salute to America’s fallen warfighters, is held each year and marches up Route 70 and down Chambers Bridge Road, followed by a memorial ceremony at town hall.
