In February, swarms of sports fanatics descended on the St. Pete/Clearwater area for the Super Bowl. This weekend, they’ll return for the Super Boat.
Presented by a host of sponsors including Bright House Networks and the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce, the inaugural Clearwater Super Boat Offshore National Championship speeds into town October 2-4 for three days of family-friendly, full-throttle entertainment.
The 1st Annual Clearwater Super Boat National Championship will be held on Clearwater Beach October 2nd – 4th.
Former Clearwater Mayor Brian Aungst, who is also the Race Chairman, is excited about the event coming to town “I think it’ll be a great event for the area,” he says. “It’s a family event, it’s a fun event.” He is looking forward to the races becoming an annual event, as well as getting to show off both the completed Beach Walk project on South Clearwater Beach, and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico view to incoming visitors. “It’s a great time to bring people here,” he says.
The City of Clearwater would like to remind you to do the Stingray Shuffle. The peak of stingray season May through October, so when visiting the beach, please be aware that stingrays might be in the water. To make sure you don’t accidentally step on one and get stung, shuffle your feet, instead of walking through the water. This causes a disturbance in the sand that causes the stingrays to move away.
A section of the old Belleair Bridge was demolished on July 15th as construction continued into the next phase on the newer, bigger and better Belleair Beach Causeway Bridge.
The Belleair Beach Causeway Bridge connects the Pinellas County Mainland Peninsula to the Barrier Islands, from Belleair Bluffs to Sand Key and Belleair Shore. The former structure was built in 1950, with an expected life span of fifty years. In the 21st century, the design had become obsolete and was too expensive to maintain so a new bridge was built.
CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla. (July 30, 2009) – JMC Communities, the St. Petersburg, Fla. based real estate development company, announced today that their award-winning Sandpearl Residences has just completed two newly designed models.
