Attendees of the Rotary Club of Claremont’s 14th annual Taste of Claremont will get an extra hour to kick up their heels next Saturday, April 20, at the Claremont University Consortium from 5 to 9 p.m.
Event Chair Tim Harrison and Rotary volunteers have extended the event this year to let revelers dance and dine to their hearts content.
“Last year, it closed at 8 p.m. and we felt like we were kicking people off the dance floor,” Mr. Harrison explained. “And the dance floor will be bigger this year, so people can do a little more dancing.”
