Street performing or busking is a live entertainment unlike any other. A street show draws its substance from its audience as many shows incorporate their acts around the actions of those watching the show. What makes busking even more unique is the fact that the audience decides the worth of the performance. There is never an admission fee and no tickets are sold.

YMCA Kids Fishing RodeoApril 27
Check-in at Pier 60 Pavilion: 8-9AM
Lunch and Awards: 11AM
Welcome to the rodeo! The Fishing Rodeo gives children the opportunity to fish for the day, many of whom have never held a rod and reel before!
The 18th Annual Kids' Fishing Rodeo will be held in partnership with the Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival at Pier 60, on Clearwater Beach, Saturday April 27 at 8AM. The experience of fishing with so many children at one time gives parents and kids an opportunity to enjoy a beautiful day outdoors, in a fun, safe environment. The YMCA Kids’ Fishing Rodeo is a fun day of catch-and release fishing for kids, ages 5-12 and is organized to give them the opportunity to fish in a noncompetitive environment. With the help of sponsors, children will receive a new rod and reel, bait, t-shirt and lunch with their paid $10 entry. Entry fees must be received by Friday, April 26, or it's $15 the day of the event. Check-in for the mini-anglers starts at 8 a.m at the pavilion and fishing hours are from 9 to 11 a.m. In addition, each child must be accompanied by an adult. All proceeds of the Kids' Fishing Rodeo will benefit the YMCA Community Support Campaign. In 2019, the Clearwater YMCA will award more than $100,000 in scholarship opportunities to kids, seniors, teens and families. Come for the Fishing Rodeo, stay for the Sugar Sand Festival! To register, call the Clearwater YMCA (727) 461-9622 or visit the branch at 1005 South Highland Avenue in Clearwater.
