Dairy Days Parade postponed, Dairy Banquet not being held this year

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on large gatherings and required social distancing, the Allamakee County Dairy Promotion Board has made a couple of decisions on its annual Dairy Days Parade and Dairy Banquet. The board has chosen to postpone the parade until a later date and has decided to cancel the banquet for this year.

Jeremy Peake of the Allamakee County Dairy Promotion Board says that the rescheduling date for the parade has yet to be determined and will be dependent upon further guidance from state and local leaders in regard to public gatherings. The parade was originally scheduled to be held this coming Monday, June 1 in Waukon.

The annual Dairy Banquet was originally also postponed from its Saturday, March 21 date, but Peake says it has been decided to cancel the event this year. Award winners will still be notified in the coming weeks and featured in The Standard’s annual Beef & Dairy section scheduled to come out during the month of June.
