Ruth Eckerd Hall On The Road announced today that Rudolph’s Miracle on Cleveland Street will be on Saturday, December 3 from 5 to 10 pm.
This free holiday festival returns for the ninth year when the 400-600 blocks of downtown Clearwater’s Cleveland Street District will be transformed into a holiday wonderland complete with falling snow, a skating rink, horse and carriage rides, pictures with Santa, carolers from the Clearwater Chorus, a giant gingerbread house, face painting and a balloon artist, inflatables and more. Children will also be able to phone Santa’s Elves in the North Pole to share their Christmas wish list. Some of the activities require a wristband which may be purchased for $8.
The festival will feature vendors with arts and crafts and holiday themed-food and refreshments available for purchase throughout Cleveland Street.
Entertainment will include a performance by the Marcia P. Hoffman School of the Arts Jazz Ensemble, 2015 GRAMMY Museum’s® Music Revolution Project’s AB Positive and a FREE concert by The FIXX, one of the most innovative bands to come out of the MTV era. The style and substance of the band has always created a special connection with its audience. The FIXX’s themes are often complex, introspective and thought-provoking and it’s also been mass appeal with three #1 hits, five in the top five, a dozen reaching the top ten and millions of albums sold worldwide. Instantly recognizable, The FIXX sound is unmistakably unique and stands out among the thousands of artists filling the airwaves. Songs such as One Thing Leads To Another, Red Skies and Saved By Zero remain everyday staples on the playlists of the radio stations that continue to break new acts inspired the era that The Fixx helped to define. It is rare for an audience to experience a band that has continued to thrive for three decades. The Fixx were then, and still are - Cy Curnin on vocals, Rupert Greenall on keyboards, Jamie West-Oram on guitar, Adam Woods on drums, and bassist Dan K. Brown.
