Clearwater Community Volunteers put on Winter Wonderland

Each year since 1993, the Clearwater Community Volunteers put on Winter Wonderland, which is a two to three-week long charity drive in downtown Clearwater whose proceeds benefit the children of Pinellas County. Winter Wonderland is a complete Christmas village with an entertainment stage, photos with Santa, cookie decorating with Mrs. Claus, a hot chocolate shop, a petting zoo, pony rides, playground, a Bouncy House, a Giant Slide and the Holiday Express Train!

Entrance to Winter Wonderland is free but we ask visitors to bring a non-perishable food item and/or an unwrapped toy. The toys and canned goods are donated to local area charities, such as the Homeless Emergency Project sponsored by Everybody’s Tabernacle.

Winter Wonderland is open from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm on weeknights, and 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm on weekends. For the starting and ending dates of this year’s Winter Wonderland, please check the event details in the sidebar of our website.

People from all over the world have visited Winter Wonderland, gazing in awe at the thousands of lights that adorn the real pine trees and enjoying the wonderful entertainment that is on the stage all the time that Winter Wonderland is open.

Entrance to Winter Wonderland is free but we ask visitors to bring a non-perishable food item and/or an unwrapped toy. The toys and canned goods are donated to local area charities, such as the Homeless Emergency Project sponsored by Everybody’s Tabernacle.

The Clearwater Community Volunteers was established in 1994 by parishioners of the Church of Scientology who wanted to become more involved in the local community by putting on events and helping other groups in the community. CCV is all about helping others, and having fun doing it!
