Opening weekend for Nature’s Coastal Holiday

This is opening weekend for Brookings’ annual holiday light show at Azalea Park, where visitors will find  hundreds of thousands of colored lights adorning trees, bushes, sidewalks and sculptures.

The four-week-long show, called Nature’s Coastal Holiday, is one of the largest light displays on the Oregon Coast. It’s scheduled to light the park from 5 to 9 every evening from now through Dec. 25.

Admission is $1. Children 12 and younger are admitted free. Cookies and hot apple cider are served at the Snack Shack. The show usually attracts thousands of visitors.

Chasing rainbows

Andrew Epperson captured the full ark of the rainbow outside Sebastian’s Seafood Grill at the Port of Brookings Harbor.

The clouds parted, allowing a ray of sunshine to pierce through the moisture in the air creating rainbows that captured Curry Coastal Pilot readers’ attention.

Thursday’s colorful spectacle caused a flood of photos to be posted on Facebook. Photos were submitted to the Pilot as well. Friday morning editor Scott Graves posted on the Pilot’s Facebook page asking for rainbow photos, and many more were submitted.

Only a few could be published on this page, on Page 1A and Page 6B. Many more can be found on the Pilot’s Facebook page.

So, what is a rainbow?
