There are some fun February Events here in Sarasota! Tis the season for snowbirds and vacation week is going on up north, so there are quite a few things happening down here! It’s always a great time to kayak with us on Lido Key, but if you’re looking for some other things to do when you’re done kayaking, check out these events below.
The 22nd Annual Thunder by the Bay Music and Motorcycle Festival is back at the Sarasota Fairgrounds this weekend. The festival is for the benefit of Suncoast Charities for Children and honors our Veterans, Active Duty Military, and First Responders.
