Clearwater, FL, December 28, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- On December 21, United Kingdom’s Jive Aces brought holiday cheer to Downtown Clearwater’s Winter Wonderland with a concert performance for all to enjoy. Despite the rain, dancers took the opportunity not only to sing in the rain, but to swing as well.
The Jive Aces are a 6-piece swing band, formed in the UK in 1989. They have performed in over 30 countries and have been recognized as one of the top swing bands in the world. In 2012, they were finalists of Britain’s Got Talent and have received many accolades and awards for their music.
The Jive Aces’ performance was in addition to the usual Winter Wonderland activities that include: decorating cookie with Mrs. Claus, visiting with Santa and his elves, petting baby animals, riding ponies and the Winter Wonderland train, sliding down the 20-foot slide, jumping in Winter Wonderland’s bouncy house and spinning on the human gyroscope.
“We got a real British performance, rain and all,” said Curt Larson, CCV Volunteer and MC for the concert. “It was awesome seeing such a crowd dancing under the rain, with or without umbrellas! Everyone was smiling by the end of the night.”
Winter Wonderland is located on the corner of Drew Street and N. Fort Harrison Avenue, in downtown Clearwater and is sponsored by the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization.
All donations collected during Winter Wonderland will be donated to the Pinellas County Sherriff Police Athletic League. Winter Wonderland is one of the numerous community events organized by the Clearwater Community Volunteers. For more information, please visit www.ccvfl.org or call the CCV Center at (727) 316-5309.
