Clearwater Community Fun Day With Latin Flair

The Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay hosted a Hispanic Heritage Festival and community day for the Clearwater community.  

“Happiness” was the theme of the Hispanic Heritage Festival at the Osceola Courtyard in downtown Clearwater, Florida.

The community day, organized by The Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay, featured a selection of Mexican songs performed by accomplished young dancers and singers.

The Latin theme continued into the evening with an exuberant salsa dance competition.

Activities included face painting, arts and crafts and a bouncy house, and a child-sized train took its young passengers for tours of the park.

Child-sized train drove young visitors around the park.

Six local nonprofit organizations set up booths at the event: Team Florida Football and Hard 2 Guard Basketball that help young athletes train and improve their education; Groupo Folklorico Mahetzy, that promotes the culture of Mexico through music and dance; Americans for Prosperity Florida, teaching economic prosperity; and Feeding Our Children Ministries from Tampa.

The Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay showcased the precepts of The Way to Happiness, a nonreligious common-sense moral code written by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. The Association invited visitors to tour its center located a few doors south of Osceola Courtyard. It is open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
