Lakewood Ranch & Sarasota Events
We are in the midst of summertime here, which means, hot, steamy temperatures, spending more time in swimming pools and less time at outdoor festivals. The Summer months tend to have less events than the popular Fall, Winter & Spring months, however, we found a few happenings you may want to venture out to check out this month!
