For many years now Clarence Day in the Park has been the unofficial start of summer. This fun, one-day extravaganza returns on Saturday, June 25th from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Clarence Town Park (10405 Main Street). Clarence Day in the Park is produced by Clarence Lions Club.
Clarence Day in the Park is three events in one: Day in the Park, Bark in the Park and Music in the Park. The day will conclude with a fantastic fireworks display.
“Day in the Park” is the family fun event that you would come to expect at a town celebration. Throughout the day there will be magic shows, chalk art contest, rock climbing wall, World’s Largest “Slip and Slide” party, bounce houses, “I Got It” tent and so much more. It’s free to attend, however some rides require a wristband. There is a cornhole tournament taking place from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., with advance registration necessary. No celebration is complete without mouthwatering food. Vendors will be onhand and will sell your favorite foods – from Chivettas chicken to carnival favorites such as pizza, fried dough, sno cones and more.
Entering its fourth year, “Bark at the Park” celebrates the pooches. There are some fun events on tap including the Doggie Dash and the Doxie Derby. There are several contests for your dog including costumes, tricks, behavior, owner look-a-like contest and more. All well-behaved dogs on a leash are welcome.
“Music at the Park” will feature two bands playing classic rock hits. The Donnellys Band will play from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Legendary Jonesie and the Cruisers from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
