No Reason for Boredom - There's Plenty Going On This Week!


The next several days are packed with fun and exciting things for the whole family! Although the Botany concert had to be canceled for tonight due to the extreme heat, you can still hear some great local music at the Athenia Veteran's Post (and even catch the mayor on drums). There's a huge food festival, various cultural events, and National Night Out, followed by an outdoor movie in the park.

Clifton has a lot going on; don't miss out on all the fun!
