BANGOR — City councilors aren’t too sure about when some of our favorite annual public parades and events are coming back to town.
During Monday’s government operations committee, city officials debated whether they could safely hold the annual downtown parades and events.
Some councilors argued there’s no way to control social distancing for a parade and no way to force the public to wear masks when attending a parade.
Making it hard for the city officials to fulfill CDC guidelines for parades.
“It sounds like Memorial day and the fourth of July, right now, it doesn’t seem like we’re going to get there,” Bangor City Councilor Jonathan Sprague said.
He and the majority of the counselors agreed for public events usually held at the waterfront, West Market Square, Cascade Park, or occasionally Broadway Park.
If they work together, there is a better possibility to fulfill CDC guidelines to potentially host them.
