Clearwater, Florida – The city of Clearwater has postponed Friday’sMiracle on Cleveland Street. The organizers say the 40 tons of snow will turn to ice if it’s rained on. There’s a 70 percent chance of rain.

The event has been rescheduled to next Friday, December 11 from 5-10 p.m.

“The fear is that with unseasonable rain, the snow would turn into ice and slush. It could be a safety issue,” said Bill Sturtevant, chairman of the Clearwater Downtown Partnership, which is putting on the snow event.

This is the second year for the Miracle on Cleveland Street event held in the 500 and 600 blocks of Cleveland Street.

The free, family-friendly event features tons of snow, Santa Claus, a live band, actors from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, and a Christmas train.

About 2,500 people attended last year, and a bigger crowd is expected this year.
