Since 2017 the town has hosted Crellin Park Day for the Chatham Community to celebrate recreation and raise awareness of activities and facilities available at Crellin Park. This year the event is on Saturday
August 7, 2021, between 1:00 P.M. and 8.00 P.M. If the event
has to be cancelled because of rain, there will be no rain date. For now, there will be no COVID restrictions
Participants will be able to purchase food from This and That Food Truck and Ice Cream Treats from Mr. Ding-a-ling. This and That Food Truck will be there at 1 P.M. Chatham Brew will be serving beer only at the new pavilion during the concert, 4:00 – 7:30 P.M.
Each year the committee has organized the event so that favorite team sports like youth basketball, baseball and soccer are available. We are hoping we will have enough participants for adult soccer, and
volleyball may also be available. Pickle ball has become a favorite at the park. There will be a chance to have some instruction if you are
new to the game. If enough people are interested there will be volunteers to organize a tournament. there will be time and court space for a game with friends. If you are a tennis player there will be court time
available between 1 and 3. The waterfront will be open between 12 -7. There will be swimming for all ages, an opportunity to try stand
up paddle boarding .On the quieter more laid-back side there will be yard games including can/jam, cornhole, ping pong and bocce. Kids love face painting and there will be the opportunity to try on a new look. Tie dying will also be available-bring your own white T-shirt, bandana.
Special day time events include a performance of “Branche” by the internationally renowned Barcode Circus Company. Their performance is similar to “Cirque du Soleil but this Circus uses the woods as apparatus. This performance will occur at 3 P.M. The Hawthorne Valley Farmscape Ecology Program will be leading an ecology walk on the newly developed
Crellin Park/PS 21 trail system. The Chatham Animal Haven will be there with some of their friendly residents to pet and say hello to. Velo Domestique, a local Bicycle shop will be at the skateboard park. Our annual evening concert this year we are featuring Side Show Willie.
