An annual Fourth of July tradition in Northampton County will be taking a year off.

The Nazareth-Bath Chamber of Commerce announced Monday that the Kazoo Parade has been cancelled for this year.

Officials said a variety of factors led to the decision, including the disbanding of the group that provided the sound system and musical entertainment for the program.

The Kazoo Parade will return next year to help celebrate the 275th anniversary of Nazareth borough, officials said.
