Scream Your Lungs Out; Pig Out On Candy
Sep 10th to Oct 26th
Halloween offers something for everyone. You can scream your lungs out and certainly there is the opportunity to bust your regular eating habits to smithereens. Events going on the area are far too many to list here so we will just name a few. You can click on the following link for a rundown on pretty all the events, some out of town.
GULFSTREAM TOWERS--Incomplete plans. In fact, we really don't know if the Social Committee has even given it any thought, but we are pretty much sure it will. We are just saving this space for that event.
FRIGHT NIGHT--Adults and children will enjoy this event on St. Armands Circle. Decorations, wandering characters, Always a favorite is the recreation of Michael Jackson's "Thriller," video performed by Sarasota High School drama students. Starts at 6 p.m.
HUNSADER FARMS--Live music, shows, rides, food and drink. Lots of activities with most emphasis on children. 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, through Oct. 25. County Road 675, Bradenton. $10 adults, $5 children 12 and under. Parking, $10.
SARASOTA PUMPKIN FESTIVAL--New performances, a pumpkin maze, midway games, petting zoo, this even has most everything. Noon to 10 p.m., Oct. 23-24, noon to 8 p.m. on Oct. 25.
With October Comes The Return Of The 'Socials'
Sep 14th to Apr 30th
The evening weather people tell us Autumn is or was and that Fall is in full swing with cooler, no humidity weather. Who are they kidding? The foolproof way to recognize the time of year is when the Winter residents start trickling back and the GST Social Season begins.
The weekly Friday coffees have started and continue each week at 9 a.m. All the coffee your bladder can stand for a $1 contribution. Sweet rolls are also available but not in the quantity as the coffee. Just stroll in at 9 or anytime (within reason) after. There is no quitting time. It is held in the community kitchen on the second floor.
Wednesdays at 5 p.m., bring your adult drink of choice and snacks to share with your neighbors. This group gets together in the more comfortable meeting room.
Carol Flory, bottom photo, a Director of the Association and former head of the social committee is serving in that capacity until Merle Haber, in charge of social gatheings, top photo, returns from summer vacation.
The Social Committee sponsors special events program throughout the winter. Periodically, they conduct offsite events such as spring training baseball games. Better make it a point to get to know the members of that committee.
Ringling International Arts Festival In October
Sep 15th to Oct 18th
Artists from across America and around the world come together at The Ringling to experience the phenomenon that is RIAF!  Hailed for its progressive programme that would rival anything in New York or London (TimeOut London), the Ringling International Arts Festival is your chance to explore and embrace the vibrant and exhilarating world of contemporary music, theater, and dance.
Here is a sampling of the programs:

The Cambodian Circus: An edgy, progressive tale of nightlife, passion, heartbreak, hope, and tears – performed with humor and humanity by talented young Cambodians using dance, circus arts, and music that beats like your heart.This performance is part of Ringling International Arts Festival.
Jen Shyu - Solo Rites: Seven Breaths: With “songs that could remind you of ancient court music or Joni Mitchell” (NY Times), Jen Shyu invites you to join her for a musical pilgrimage through Taiwan, East Timor, Indonesia, Vietnam, and South Korea. 
Peni Candra Rini: Hailed for her mastery of traditional music and innovative creativity, this Indonesian composer and singer evokes the mysterious and infinite manifestations of Rahim (the womb) with music, movement, and imagery. 
As Season Nears Park Activity Picks Up
Sep 24th to Nov 30th
J. D. Hamel Park, just across Gulfstream Avenue, is getting its dark green sheen back after heavy use during the winter season. Upcoming events are mostly participants oriented, meaning GST residents won't be run out of the sanctity of their homes with bookings such as Thunder By The Bay. Be forewarned, this is a raucous four-day gathering of hundreds of motorcyclists, usually in mid-January. Following are the earlier, less invasive, events, all either in the park or stated otherwise.
