CLEARWATER, FL, US, July 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Saturday the 13th of July, more than 1,500 fun-seeking children and families came together in downtown Clearwater to celebrate this community at the Summer Block Party, sponsored by the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization.
This free event included pony rides, a petting zoo, a bouncy house and carnival games. The Flag Band provided live entertainment throughout the evening. Area non-profits, covering such areas as the arts, anti-human trafficking and animal rescue and rehabilitation provided information about their programs alongside food trucks and a popcorn/cotton candy stand.
Guests could also learn more about Church of Scientology-sponsored humanitarian programs through a ‘passport’ that took them through each of the centers, located along North Fort Harrison Ave. These programs include United For Human Rights, the Way to Happiness, the Truth About Drugs, Criminon, Volunteer Ministers and the Citizens Commission on Human Rights. Rounding out the centers, the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center provided a space for families to cool down in.
“We have been attending your Block Party every year,” said one father from Pennsylvania. “We plan out summer vacation to attend your event and I have never seen anything like it anywhere. We can just come here and families don’t have to worry about anything, just enjoy themselves.”
Local merchants joined in, donating gift cards and baskets for the prize drawing that was held at the end of the evening.
“We are very grateful to the downtown merchants who helped make the prize drawing a success,” said event organizer Tanya Cranton. “These shops included Downtown Pizza, the One Stoppe Shoppe, Intuition Salon and Spa, La Fondita de Leo, the Tampa Bay Escape Room, the Residence Inn by Marriott, Grindhouse Café and Kara-lynn’s Kitchen.”
