St. Patrick’s day 2020 parade was cancelled due to the “social distancing” initiative to protect as many people as possible from the Corona virus.  I have only missed one St. Patrick’s day parade since it started so I decided to take a few photos of South Jefferson Street during the time that the parade should have been taking place.  I was not surprised to see that there was not a person ready to show their green spirit in the area because of the Governor’s request for “social distancing”.  Well done, Hastings citizens!  I will be ready to photograph anything that may be organized when we are allowed to be together again.
