Siesta Key Drum Circle
Head out to Siesta Key Public beach in the late afternoon every Sunday and you'll see a crowd gathering just south of the main pavilion between lifeguard stands 3 and 4 - the Siesta Key Drum Circle. It's an eclectic group of drummers, hula-hoopers, percussionists, rope walkers, sun-lovers dancers and people-watchers gathering to celebrate the sunset. This weekly celebration has been going on since 1996. Some come to participate, some just to gawk at the happenings. Drum circle regulars occasionally perform with swords and fire, you might even see a belly dancer. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join in. Bring beach chairs or a beach blanket and get there early as the parking lot can fill up quickly.
