The Town of Pincourt announced June 30 that despite the province now entering into a ‘Green Zone’ with the declining numbers in COVID-19 cases, it has no choice but to again cancel Firefighters' Day 2021.
The yearly event featured firefighters and emergency vehicles from across the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region and has been an annual celebration since 1980, with the exception of 2020 due to the pandemic.
“The time frame to organize such a large event is far too short,” said the notice on the town’s website which continues, “We know your love for this annual event and we are sorry to have to cancel it again this year. Please know that we will be back in full force in 2022 with an event that will live up to your expectations.”
