The annual Dover Halloween parade has been canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Union Fire and Hose Co. made the announcement Wednesday on its Facebook page.

“This was not an easy decision, but due to the current conditions and restrictions surrounding COVID-19, there's no way to safely ensure the safety and wellness of the community we serve,” the fire company said.
