Clarence Bark in the Park - POSTPONED

Event Date: 
Saturday, June 27, 2015 - 11:00am to 3:00pm
Event Location: 
Clarence Town Park, 10405 Main Street, Clarence, NY 14031

Message from the Clarence Chamber of Commerce:

Due to the horrible weather that is predicted​ for tomorrow​ by all the media sources we​ are forced to postpone Bark in the Park and Day in the Park​. Both events have been re-scheduled for July 25th in​ the same place. We hope to have a bigger and better event and the theme​ will be Christmas in July in Clarence.

It was necessary to postpone early so all our non profits could recoup​ their deposits on food, rides, and fireworks. Collectively we stand to​ lose over 20,000 dollars if we hold the event and it becomes a total wash​ out.

​We hope you can join us on the 25th of JULY​.
