CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y – The Town of Cheektowaga’s Supervisor and Town Council announced today that all Parades and Summer Events scheduled for 2020 will be postponed and/or canceled amid the COVID-19 Crisis.
“The Town of Cheektowaga’s priority is the health and safety of our community, including our residents, staff, supporters, vendors and volunteers,” said Brian Pilarski, Town Councilmember. “As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, it’s become clear that in the face of an unprecedented situation, we need to make tough choices.”
The following events are postponed or canceled for 2020:
Memorial Day Ceremony
Firefighters Recognition Day
War of 1812 Ceremony
Flag Day Concert
July 3rd Concert
Fourth of July Parade
Family Days and Arts & Craft Show

Other town-sponsored events and activities set to happen during the summer, like summer camps, sports leagues and recreation activities, could face the same fate. Each service and program is being evaluated individually to see if it can conform to the Governor’s 12-step plan to reopen.
“The health and safety of our residents is our number one priority, which is why the Town of Cheektowaga continues to follow the rules laid out by the PAUSE Order, and will continue to do so, regardless of its duration,” Town officials said.
