CLEARWATER, FL, USA, December 16, 2021 / -- Winter Wonderland, Downtown Clearwater’s magical Holiday Village, is open! Create family memories to last a lifetime at the beautiful, festive and safe village, from now until December 23 from 6 pm to 9 pm. Clearwater’s Winter Wonderland, located at the corner of Drew Street and Fort Harrison Avenue in downtown Clearwater, is sponsored by the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization and manned by the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV).

“For almost three decades, our Winter Wonderland has been creating joy as a safe, family fun festival,” said Mrs. Pam Ryan Anderson, chairperson of CCV. “This Holiday ‘village’ is every child’s magical playground where they can visit with Santa and his elves, ride the Winter Wonderland train, and take a spin on the human gyroscope.”

Families are encouraged to take photos with Santa, Mrs. Claus, at the photo stations, under the giant Christmas Street with plenty of presents and “snow”, or with their little ones on the carousel and with big and small kids on the “Wonderland Express”. Nightly entertainment is featured on the beautiful stage with an Alpine backdrop. Winter Wonderland is lit up with thousands of holiday lights decorating 98 Christmas trees.

To help keep families safe, there are six hand sanitizer stations throughout Winter Wonderland and masks are available for any who wish to wear one.

There is no cost to attend Winter Wonderland. However, guests are encouraged to bring a new unwrapped gift or non-perishable food items to help families in need. There is a small charge for some activities and the food items at Rudy’s Café. For more information, please visit
