Directed by Scott Blum

Join the gathering of Islanders, artists and our guests to experience a Drum Circle at the Anna Maria Island Beach Cafe at Manatee County Beach. The Circle will be led by Scott Blum. If you've never attended a Drum Circle, give yourself a treat - if you have, then you'll feel at home. The drumming will continue until sunset when we can all totally experience the magic of Anna Maria Island and all she has to offer. Bring your drums if you have them and a chair or blanket. Food and drinks will be available at the Anna Maria Island Beach Cafe's restaurant. Come down to the beach early and enjoy the food and get ready for the drum circle at 7PM.
