The opening ceremony on Wednesday, 26 September, included live music and a show featuring performances by the Circus Arts Conservatory in Sarasota. There were also food trucks available for the hungry. Here three gentlemen from Sweden have sat down to enjoy the food, a nice chat, some jokes and the evening sky, which almost turn this image into a religious scene. The ‘cross’ in the background is actually a loudspeaker.
