In Laguna Beach, we’re entirely too sophisticated to bark at the full moon, but we will DRUM at it . . . in a massive, talented drum circle that is, thanks to our eclectic organizers at LaVida Laguna.
A mainstay in this town for more than 5 years, the Laguna Beach Full Moon Drum Circles draw anywhere from 50 to 200 people who, ehrm, well … drum around a massive bonfire. It’s an absolute blast!
The brainchild of LaVida founder Billy Fried, the Drum Circle is just one of many events and tours the company offers. By day, you’ll find the company offering a hearty serving of Laguna Beach-based kayak, stand-up paddle and surf lessons – all provided by Fried and his intrepid squad of “funtrepreneurs.” By night, though, it’s the Drum Circle that rules.
The Drum Circle always takes place at the Aliso Creek Beach, about two miles south of Main Beach, just past the Montage Resort. If you show up at 6:00, bring food with you to share in the monstrous pot luck. Then, from about 7 – 10 p.m., the drums begin to roar.
