The COVID-19 pandemic continues its streak of holiday cancellations with the announcement from the Belmont Shore Business Association Thursday that there will be no Belmont Shore Christmas Parade this year.

The 38th annual event was to have taken place on Dec. 5.

Events planned in the Shore for the balance of the year have also been canceled. Those include the Belmont Shore Art Walk & Chalk Contest and Trick or Treat on Second Street.

Outdoor restaurant seating and parklets will continue through the year, as will shopping opportunities, including Small Business Saturday on Nov. 28, according to the association’s statement.
