The annual event celebrates TT’s independence from Great Britain on August 31, 1962, with military-styled parades at the Queens Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain and Scarborough, Tobago.

This is followed by a massive fireworks display at the Savannah in the evening.

However, Young said careful consideration was given to the current situation with regards to Covid-19 and it was found that the safest option would be to forego having a parade this year.

He also took the chance to remind persons to adhere to the public health guidelines currently in place.
