Old-Fashioned Reading and Tea Party at Clearwater Community Volunteers Center Create Spooky Halloween Fun

1000 Days ago

CLEARWATER, Fla., Oct. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On October 26th, the Clearwater Community Volunteers will host a spooky tea party in their center located on 133 N. Fort Harrison Avenue. The tea party will feature an old fashioned radio-style reading of a thrilling story presented by the East Coast Theater. The event will start at 5PM sharp and Halloween costumes are encouraged. There is no cost to attend.

“We all remember enjoying a Halloween party in our childhood and attentively listening to spooky stories,” said Michael Soltero, Director of the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center. “We wanted to play with that nostalgia and create our very own spooky tea party, like the good old days.”

The Halloween we know today can trace its roots back to the ancient Celtic end-of-harvest festival of Samhain. During Samhain, people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off evil spirits. Gathering together for Halloween story telling is a late 1800’s addition to the long list of traditions for the holiday.

Guests are highly encouraged to dress up in costume for the tea party. It was believed that ghosts and spirits walked the Earth on the night of Samhain, so people would dress up as spirits themselves in an effort to fool the real deal into thinking they were one of the “spooks”.

To learn more or to reserve tickets for the Halloween tea party please contact Michael, at (727)-316-5309 or email ccvdirector@ccvfl.org.
