Fun at Nokomis Beach Drum Circle0
by Jeannie Bloomfield
Whether you’re a local resident who’s lived in the area for awhile, or a snowbird that’s here for a short visit, you can have a fun experience in a special part of old Florida.
It’s a local tradition that may be the largest circle events of its kind on Florida’s West Coast. You’ll find it at the Nokomis Beach Drum Circle.
The drum circle has been around for decades, yet each circle event is different depending on the time of year and the weather.
People come from all over the world, and the gathering can range anywhere from a handful of people to a crowd numbering in the thousands. It’s an experience that takes you in as the drummers pound out the beat for belly dancers in costume and colorful characters dressed in beach garb. Kids of all ages step out into the circle to have fun and play. It’s people watching at its best!
It’s different watching a sun set when it happens during a drum circle event. It’s a special time to share with family and friends or claim for yourself. It’s simple! All you have to do is pack a picnic, bring a blanket or beach chairs and find a place to sit around the circle. If you want to play in the spirit of fun, bring a drum or tambourine – no experience necessary. Or you may want to get up and move around while you feel the beat of the scene. And maybe- if you can just get over yourself- you might even have the courage to step out into the circle. Whatever you choose to do…the drum circle is easy going- and it’s just plain wonderful!
The drum circle is a fun time for everyone and it shows! You can see for yourself…because wherever you look- whether you’re watching the sun set, or enjoying the scene as the moon and the stars come out- there’s lots of smiles. It’s exhilarating to be out in nature playing in the sand close to the water. The scene at Nokomis Beach Drum Circle is an experience that makes special memories that feel good!
Give yourself the gift of enjoying the good things in life that feed the soul! Join us at the beach and watch the sunset while you have a little fun moving around the circle. If you step into it, you might discover a whole new side to yourself as you dance like there’s’ no tomorrow! I did- and it changed my life in the best of ways! I can show you how with Belly Fit Fun! So come down to Nokomis Beach and say hello! It all happens every Wednesday and Saturday a few hours before dusk. You can find me dancing at the beach or flying around watching the sunset with a big smile on my face! It’s just fun-and it doesn’t cost a thing!
