CHEVIOT, Ohio — Due to COVID-19 concerns, the 2020 Harvest Home Parade has been canceled, according to a post on the parade’s Facebook page Wednesday night.

Parades are one of the activities mentioned on a list of operations or businesses that are still closed, released by The Ohio Department of Health on Aug. 3.

The parade’s Facebook post said the governor informed the city that officials don’t see those closures changing by Sept. 10 – the date of this year’s parade.

2020 would have been the 63rd year of the Harvest Home Parade.
