Drum Circle In Manitou Springs, CO

Hippies And Manitou Locals Bang Their Drums In Memorial Park

Drum Circle August 2002 - In Memorial Park, there was a "rain dance" where people beat their percussion instruments in unison.

During that summer, there was a significant drought, and I think a community leader quipped that they should do rain dances like in the old days to appeal to the weather gods for us to have more rain. Well, weeks later, there was this drum circle and it became a weekly tradition for awhile.

Manitou Springs Drum Circle It was a lot of fun and there was definitely a 1960s hippie feel to the event: Lots of long-haired guys, tie-dye shirts and people dancing around. (And I'm a supporter of all three, ha ha, I have long hair myself!)
