FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Clearwater, FL – On July 15th, the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization is sponsoring their next family friendly bi-monthly Community Downtown Block Party in Clearwater. The party includes food and activities such as face painting, bouncy houses, train rides and more. The event will be on Downtown Clearwater’s Cleveland Street, from Fort Harrison Ave. to Garden Ave. There is no cost to attend.
“Families are always looking for something to take their kids to in the summer,” said Dylan Pires, Community Affairs Director for the Church of Scientology in Clearwater. “These block parties provide family-friendly entertainment, food and games to give families something to do.”
The Church of Scientology has hosted 3 block parties over the last year, bringing over 8,000 Clearwater residents downtown to join in on the fun. There are plenty of activities for guests of all ages including carnival games; the newest addition.
The Block Party also features over a dozen non-profits and charities, giving these groups the opportunity to show what they do for the community. For one non-profit specifically, Teaching Another Generation In Need (TAGIN), it will be their first time participating.

In addition to the festivities, Block Party goers will have the opportunity to find out all about the social programs supported by Scientologists around the world. Along Fort Harrison Avenue lie the Scientology Information Center and six centers devoted to their respective non-profit humanitarian organizations: United for Human Rights of Florida; The Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay; Foundation for a Drug-Free World; Criminon Florida; Scientology Volunteer Ministers; and the Citizens Commission on Human Rights Florida.
