Labor Day Parade:  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the West Kentucky Labor Day Parade Committee announced in June its decision to cancel the 2020 parade.  At that time, Committee President David Yates said, "After a discussion of committee members, we could not find a way to have a parade and festivities while safely social distancing. With deep regret we must cancel this year's Labor Day Parade. We would love to celebrate the path that Labor has paved for each and every one of us, but public safety is of the utmost concern. There are too many unknowns to put the health of our members and the great supporters we have at risk. We will focus on making next year an event for everyone to enjoy."
