TOWN OF ERIN, Wis. (CBS 58) – A Washington County staple, the Town of Erin parade, returned after being canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic.

On Wednesday, Mar. 17, the parade was held and many people lined the route.

“It’s so much fun,” Rubicon resident Tracy Gamsky said. “It’s a day to let loose.”

Some people social distanced by watching the parade from their cars. For many the parade is a tradition.

“I’ve been coming here since 1983,” North Lake resident George Ritonia said.

Usually the parade draws thousands, but this year people say the crowd was smaller.

“There’s a lot less people here, I don’t know if it’s because of COVID or because of the weather,” West Bend resident Jeffery Kaiser said. “It’s good to see a turn out and we’re glad to be here.”

The parade wrapped up shortly after noon.
