A variety of performers participated in last year’s Diversity Day. Organizers say this year will include even more performances.
CLEARWATER – The city of Clearwater was set to celebrate its diverse cultural demographic during the second annual Diversity Day.

The event, themed “Celebrating and Embracing the Diversity of the World,” was slated to take place from 5 to 8 p.m. on Sept. 8 at Station Square Park and along Cleveland Street in the city’s downtown corridor.

However, due to Hurricane Irma, the event has been canceled. City officials say if possible the event will be rescheduled.

There will be no shortage of entertainment at the three-hour event, said organizer Tabitha Green, which will include musical and dance acts highlighting a variety of cultures, including Filipino, Asian, Hispanic and Scottish performances.

“This is such a great way to get to know your community,” Green said. “Although this is only our second year, we definitely plan to do this every year.”

Green said that bringing all facets of the community together in one place can be such a good opportunity for residents.

“We always try to get all members of our community to participate,” Green said. “This is a wonderful way to showcase that.”

In an effort to help mitigate the sweltering Florida heat, the event was moved from the afternoon to the evening and there will be a number of food trucks and vendors on hand to help keep festival-goers cool with ice cream, sno cones and bottled drinks. Vendors will also offer a sampling of ethnic food, Green said.

The family-friendly event will also feature children’s activities, including bounce houses, face painting, a photobooth and touch-a-truck opportunities.

Also on hand will be city staff and police officers and fire fighters, Green said.

Popular area country musicians The Bearded Brothers Band will take the stage at Station Park at 8 p.m. to round out the night’s performances.

For more information about the event, call Green at 727-562-4970, ext. 5246.
