2020 Tugboat Roundup Cancelation
In consideration of directives from the Governor, we regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Tugboat Roundup. COVID-19 has hampered our ability to produce a festival that celebrates and features working tugs. COVID-19 has also affected the maritime industry. Crews are working longer assignments to reduce turnover and the construction shut down earlier in the year, means that more work must be done in the later months of the year. The generous maritime companies who pause their work for one weekend each year to bring their tugs and barges to Waterford for the public to explore and enjoy, cannot, this year, risk exposing their crews or take time away from a condensed working season.
Unfortunately, the fireworks display and Tugboat Parade are also canceled.
We very much look forward to celebrating with all of you at the 2021 Tugboat Roundup.
The Town Clerk’s Office will be closed from 11am to 12pm on Friday July 10th.
