Bud Halliday ran away and joined the circus 29 years ago — and the 85-year-old Brookings man is still in touch with his inner kid.

Planners prepare for Festival of Art in Stout Park

The new Festival of Art in Stout Park is coming up next weekend and organizers announce they have 45 artists lined up, but they have also been asked a question, much to their surprise — where is Stout Park?

Stout Park “is a lovely place for an art festival. The park is located on Oak Street, one block up  from Chetco Avenue and Oak Street,” said event organizer Vi Burton. Manley Art Center is located in the same area, at the end of the parking lot. The Pelican Bay Arts Association sign hangs at the beginning of the parking lot.
