Pirate festival weekend

Children celebrate their inner pirate during a free-for-all swashbuckling activity at last yearís festival.

For those with pirate garb gathering dust in the closet, this is the weekend to dig it out — or risk death by walking the plank — for the fifth annual Pirates of the Pacific Festival this Friday through Sunday at the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Organizers Bruce Ellis and Mike Moran are looking forward to seeing more people than ever this year. In the past, it has drawn thousands of visitors.


Another successful country music fest

The second annual Cape Blanco Country Music Festival was even bigger this year, drawing a crowd of 18,000 and fans from around the country.

“We are ecstatic with how the festival went,” said Anne Hankins, president of Boots ‘N’ Beach LLC, the festival promoter that organized the event. “We increased from 14,000 last year and sold out.”

Hankins added that the main issue with the show, traffic congestion, largely resolved itself by the second day of the festival.

“Last year, with only about 14,000, people could just come in. This year, with more crowds, there was a traffic backup on Friday. But everything worked out by Saturday,” Hankins said.
