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.
CLEARWATER, FL - Businesses, neighborhood associations, and other organizations with at least six members are invited to volunteer to work with the city on various outdoor service projects.

In exchange for their hard work, the group will experience the reward of making a visible difference that everyone can enjoy, and the satisfaction of doing something worthwhile.
Summer is upon us, temperatures are soaring and what better way to keep children entertained and cool than an afternoon by the swimming pool. A dark side of a summer in the sun is that a sparkling swimming pool can also be a serious summer hazard. Unfortunately, when the temperature goes up, so does the number of accidental drownings involving children. The backyard pool is a magnet for children of all ages.
