Relive the magic and music of the Beatles when Abbey Road LIVE! takes the stage Thursday, July 9, as part of Brookings’ free Summer Concerts in the Park series at Azalea Park.

This is a special mid-week show that starts at 6 p.m. 

Music fans are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs to the park’s natural amphitheater to enjoy the concert, presented by sponsor Rogue Credit Union.


Celebrating the Fourth

A large firework set off at Wednesday night’s demonstration appears to be an erupting volcano.

Food and fireworks will highlight Fourth of July festivities at the Port of Brookings Harbor today.

A few festivities have already begun, including a fireworks show at the Living Waters Foursquare Church’s Crackle Jax fireworks stand at South Coast Center.

Harbor Fire Department volunteers set off fireworks, demonstrating what the products sold at the tent look like.

Two Curry County-based music nonprofits are raffling a custom-made, $2,000 ukulele that will be awarded during the Wild Rivers Music Festival in Brookings this August.

“The fundraiser will benefit both organizations in their efforts to provide local music events and music education in the schools,” said ukulele builder Les Stansell, of the Pistol River Concert Association (PRCA).

The PRCA has joined with the Brookings-based Stagelights Musical Arts Community, which is hosting the Wild Rivers Music Festival on Aug. 15-16 at the Azalea Park ballfield.

A Love for Reptiles

The largest turtle, which took two people to lift, was presented outside and was allowed to be touched by visitors to the program.

Chetco Community Public Library became a menagerie of people and critters Friday when Mary Esther Hart, founder of the International Reptile Rescue in Canby, showed a variety of animals.

There was standing-room only in the large meeting room as children sat on the floor at the front, their attention drawn to the many reptiles Hart showed — snakes, dragons, alligators, turtles.
