This ritual happens most Sundays and it’s so cool. Lots of peaceful people gather to enjoy life, the music and the moment.

Every time we go to Sarasota we attend the Siesta Key Drum Circle. Always see friends from the north that we didn't know were in Florida.

Perpetually great people watching coupled with drums that make it impossible to not enjoy a fun time. As the sun sets there is always a blowing of a conch shell.

A really fun experience at the best beach in the US! Many people playing various percussion instruments. People hula hooping, dancing. A very hippie vibe. Fantastic and entertaining people watching. Plus you can walk on the beach and see the sunset! A must do!
