Drum Circle is Back with a Bang in Santa Cruz's Parking Lot #4
by ~Bradley (bradley [at] riseup.net)
Wednesday Sep 24th, 2008 7:38 PM
Mesh fencing that circled the magnolia trees in Santa Cruz's Parking Lot #4 at noon on September 24th had been removed by 3:30pm and a painted cardboard banner hung proudly declaring, "Home of the Farmer's Market Drum Circle 10 Years Here!!" The drum circle seemed as large as ever with more people gathered in the parking lot. Wes returned, along with others in Santa Cruz Trash Orchestra, and Food Not Bombs provided another delicious vegan meal. At one point there were at least two police officers monitoring the drum circle, but unlike last week, they maintained a low profile while people enjoyed the special community gathering.

Some drummers that had planed to play at the clock tower quickly learned about the recovery of space under the trees and moved their drums to the parking lot next to farmer's market.
