DowntownClearwater.com was launched on Friday, January 26 at the monthly Blast Friday event and city staff and volunteers handed out free DowntownClearwater.com sunglasses. Attendees were encouraged to take photos of where they find “Beauty Beyond the Beach” in Downtown Clearwater and tag #DowntownClearwater on Instagram for a chance to win prizes from downtown merchants. The top five images shown below were voted on CRA staff.  Congratulations to contest winners Ed Richter and Instagram members rhoxtar, tonideecolon, gregoryswilson and deadlyjawbreaker.
