BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — The 18th annual Puerto Rican and Hispanic Day Parade of Western New York has been cancelled for this summer.

It was supposed to take place in mid-August along Niagara Street in Buffalo.

This is all because of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

The parade joins a long list of summer events that have been cancelled or postponed this year.
