On Friday, we headed downtown to ask locals their thoughts on the first sign of fall in Sarasota.
“When the stores put up their fall harvest and pumpkins.”
“When people stop wearing bright-colored shirts…? I actually didn’t know we had a fall…”
“I think it’s a little bit of cooler weather that we’re all hoping for.”
“I wouldn’t even know. There’s nothing that actually comes to mind. Maybe it’s the snowbirds coming back down and (Sarasota) getting a little busier.”
“I don’t care about fall. We live in the land of paradise. What do I need to worry about?”
“I’m from Colorado … you don’t buy scarves here … what do you buy? I guess fall means end of the summer sales.”
“When I start to see car carriers, the mosquitoes disappear and I can sit outside on my porch.”
