Summer Events Postponed-Camps in Question in Clifton Park
It seems that the pandemic is reaching into the summer and cities and towns across the Capital Region are starting to make decisions. It looks like the Town of Clifton Park is the first one to postpone summer events. There will be many changes coming to the Town of Clifton Park's summer events schedule, programs, and some activities.
According to News10 ABC, it looks as if the pools won't open on Memorial Day weekend which has always been the opening date. They have been forced to push the opening to July 1. But that date may also have to move depending on the restrictions with the coronavirus pandemic. At a later date, the town may have to push the opening of the pools to later in the summer.
The Town of Clifton Park will be postponing the Fourth of July festivities. They are planning to have fireworks on September 5th. The town will have to evaluate the possibility of holding the fireworks show as that date draws closer.
There were two musical performances that were scheduled at the Clifton Common Stage for June have both been canceled.
Summer camps are also being discussed in the Town of Clifton Park. They are reviewing holding full-day and half-day summer camps plus specialty camps. Phase Four is when New York State has designated recreation as part of the reopening.
They are waiting to hear from New York state as far as Phase One reopenings to gauge when summer camps may be able to open. The fireworks, however, will not be happening for the Fourth of July weekend. The Town of Clifton Park says that they financially cannot afford to have the show because of shortfalls during the pandemic.
