COVID Concerns Cancel Crimson Cavalcade in Tuscaloosa, Alabama
The University of Alabama Band Department announced it will cancel an event planned for later in September due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19.
"The Million Dollar Band has made the decision to cancel this year’s Crimson Cavalcade event that we were hoping to host later this month," the band said in a statement to social media Monday.
"Due to the concerns and risks of the coronavirus in the Tuscaloosa community, schools, and abroad, we feel this is in the best interest of all students and spectators," the MDB said.
The 2020 Crimson Cavalcade was also canceled due to concerns about the virus, but the band department remains optimistic for the future.
"We do thank those that expressed interest in this event and we are looking forward to next year in hopes we can bring this experience back to the students, staff, and spectators," the band said.
