Family Beach Party at Allegany State Park

Put on your festive Hawaiian shirt, pull on your dancing shoes and practice the limbo because it’s time for the Beach Party at Allegany State Park. The day kicks off at 3:00 p.m., August 16th, at the Red House Beach area with a Seneca-Salamanca Chamber of Commerce sponsored showcase featuring local vendors and organizations. Come check out the many great things that are available in the local community such as handmade jewelry, bath and body products, all natural honey, and a variety of bake goods. Empire Animal Rescue Society (EARS) will stop by before the music starts with some adoptable pets looking for forever homes.

This family-friendly event will feature activities for all ages. Park Naturalists will be on hand at the “Ask the Naturalist” table. Bring your nature-related questions and check out some cool interactive displays. The Red House Beach will be open to swimming from 11:00 a.m. through 7:45 p.m. and the snack bar will be open from 11:00 a.m. until the start of the fireworks. J-Con Concessions will host a chicken barbecue beginning at 4:00 p.m. (until sold out).

Check back for more details as the event gets closer.

Be sure to stick around as we end the evening with amazing fireworks over the waters of Red House Lake, a sight not to be missed! Please observe the no parking signs that will be in place that evening.
