The annual May Days festival opens up tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon and it is sure to bring the crowds to the downtown area of Clinton.


Clinton Police Chief Ben Lowers says May Days is always a fun event for the community and surrounding areas and brings out the crowds. He reminds residents the area just south of the square will be blocked off for the carnival and the square will be blocked off for the duration of the festival this weekend.



Chief Lowers believes May Days a very clean and well-run festival that rarely brings any issues with it.



Chief Lowers asks those that plan to attend to leave the pets at home and also to plan to walk around the carnival and square area while leaving the bikes and skateboards at home. He notes if any of their officers encounter pets, bikes or skateboards, they will be asked to return those to their homes.



May Days are this Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday on the square in Clinton. For a full list of the weekend's activities, visit clintonilchamber.com/maydays-festival.
