Thousands of people found a relaxing place to look at art, watch presentations, listen to music and enjoy culinary delights at the Boardwalk Arts Fest at the Port of Brookings Harbor over the weekend.
“We tried to make it as stress free as possible,” said Dori Blodgett, chair of the organization committee.
Blodgett and a team of volunteers sprang into action after it was announced that the Festival of the Arts, which was scheduled during the same weekend, had been canceled. She and several others didn’t want to be without a summer arts event. They contact artists, vendors and businesses offering services. As a result, total of 70 artisans came together to set up booths and sell their crafts and services. A few gave demonstrations.
