Hollywood drum circle anniversary + Full moon

Drum church and his holyness[/caption]

Hope you’re not getting soaked! Yes, our rainy season is here for some time, I hope you didn’t use your drum for an extra rain ritual.
This weekend:
The Hollywood drum circle turns two: Celebrating Our 2-Year Anniversary this Sunday 23rd @ Holland Park, Main Level of Waterfront Tower EVERY 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month! Sunday 3:30pm – Park Closes, or when we get tired.
801 Johnson Street Hollywood, FL 33019 – Belly-Dancers welcome! – Wheel-Chair accessible ramp on Tower! – Free Parking! – Open Restrooms on premises!
We will be jamming and partying like always in a beautiful breezy setting right by the water in an absolutely gorgeous park! The boaters passing by may get jealous 🙂 No Drugs, No Alcohol Containers(Conceal Please), No Fire, No Littering.
For more info, contact Kirsten: 954-558-7172(Cell)

Also on Sunday, Drum Church devotees get together for another spiritual journey at: AD Barnes Park – clearing near Nature Center (or fall-back location – see below) 3401 SW 72 Avenue – northeast corner of Bird Rd and 72 Ave 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Notes: If the shady grove (primitive camping area) near the AD Barnes Park Nature Center is not available, we can fall back to the picnic table under the tree by the canal, or, if needs be, the shelter on the other side of that canal (a good place if it’s rainy). Here’s the address of that fall-back shelter for the Google-mappers:
“6990 N Waterway Dr, Coral Terrace (Miami), FL, United States
[Address is approximate]”…
We play inside the forest! To get there, park in the first available spaces to the left as soon as you enter the park, and head into the forest from that side. Through the forest gate, the wooden deck is shaded and has seating.
Surdos, dunns, and other “bottom” drums are welcome; but other than that, hand drums only, please.
The AD Barnes Park people like what we are doing; but they do ask us to please not park in the clearing itself, but to park our cars out by the paved access road.

And last but not least, this next week, the Miami beach Full Moon Drum Circle
