In an effort to ensure the safety of Clayton residents and area visitors, the Clayton July 3 fireworks display has been canceled.  

The decision was made early Tuesday afternoon by village administration and the Clayton Chamber of Commerce. A post made on Facebook made the announcement stating, “This decision was not taken lightly and we are just as disappointed as you may be. We still encourage you to visit Clayton. Our accommodations, shops, restaurants are now open. It is anticipated that attractions will be opening in Phase 4 tentatively set for June 26.”
