Virginia Key Drum Circle + more drumming
This Saturday October 15th don’t miss the Virginia Key Full moon Drum circle. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, the full moon was last Monday/Tuesday, but nevertheless this is a great opportunity to get to play with your fellow drummers in the beautiful Virginia Key park. It starts at 7 PM.
The latest notices I got it says that parking is $5, it used to be free for drummers, I’d check out and post later on.
Be advised that showers and thunderstorms are expected for most of Saturday, so if weather is bad, don’t hesitate to go down there, the cover pavilion has serves well under bad weather conditions.
This is a Drug Free, Alcohol Free, Smoke Free event.
The Historic Virginia Key Beach Park. 4020 Virginia Beach Drive, Virginia Key in Miami, FL
September Full moon drum circle
Although the moon would be full on September 12th, you can celebrate it sooner at the Virginia Key Drum circle:
This Saturday September 10 from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm. Bring drums and admirable hands, hoops, poi, zils, veils, coin sashes, moving hips and clever feet (Bring your own seating)
Last time we drum at Virginia Key, were a big problem during sunset. I’d strongly recommend you to bring some sort of repellent if you’re planning to go.
This is a Drug Free, Alcohol Free, Smoke Free event.
This is a Hand-Drum circle. The park gates will only be open till 7:30, so do plan to arrive before that.
NOT the park entrance with the big sign on the median that is used to get to Jimbo’s. Immediately AFTER the Seaquarium (right before the bridge to Key Biscayne) turn left at 2nd traffic light. NOAA building and SE Fisheries are on opposite sides of the entrance road to the park.\
