Cancelled Labor Day Parade: Due to COVID-19 concerns, the West Kentucky Labor Day Parade Committee announced in August its decision to cancel the 2021 parade. Committee Coordinator David Yates posted on Facebook, "After committee discussion, we've decided to cancel this year's parade and festivities. The health and well-being of our members, families, friends, and supporters, as well as the community is our priority. We will still have the raffle on Labor Day. We will try to do it live on Facebook. Thank you all for your support. We look forward to next year better than ever!"
