The chance of sprinkles gave way to sunny skies, making the 74th Azalea Festival parade a spectacular event.

Thousands of spectators lined Chetco Avenue and Oak Streets to enjoy the parade Saturday morning that followed the theme “Fish, Flowers and Forests.”


Annual book sale brings in the crowd

Crowds pour over thousands of books at library book sale, which continues today, Sunday.
Brookings residents line up around the block at the Chetco Community Library on Thursday to buy books in every genre to support the annual Friends of the Library Book Sale.

“We usually have a line out the door,” said Tony Parrish, president of Friends of the Library. “This place is packed.”

The Wild Rivers Coast Chapter of Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) held its first organized 100-mile ride on Saturday to raise awareness of child abuse in the county; in the process, they raised more than $2,000 to help victims of child abuse.

In the morning rain with peeks of sunshine, more than 23 bikers traveled from Brookings to Klamath and returned to the Lucky 7 Casino in Smith River, where the casino donated $250 to the group and invited them back for future events.

Last time I covered Lone Ranch Beach to House Rock Viewpoint (Pilot, Saturday, March 30). 

This time we pick back up at House Rock Viewpoint, heading north to Whaleshead. This is a longer trek with several exceptional views, so packing a picnic lunch is a fun option.
