Pirates invade port boardwalk for 3-day festival


Breeches, bandanas, knitted caps, waistcoats and motley clothes in bright colors are all part of the pirate attire  that people will most likely be surrounded by at the first annual Pirates of the Pacific Festival at the Port of Brookings-Harbor on the boardwalk.

The festival runs from noon to 9 p.m. on Friday, July 22, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. on Saturday, July 23 and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 24. Admission is free.

“I brought it (here) because I wanted to bring the three communities – Brookings, Gold Beach and Crescent City – together,” said festival director of operations Bruce Ellis. “I want to put Brookings on the map through the pirate festival. I want to invite everybody from all over to visit our fantastic city.”

The New York-based band, consisting of singer/guitarist Delila Paz and lead guitarist Edgey, and sometimes additional band members, slides from smooth blues into an electric guitar and percussion heavy rock without losing the listener in the transition.

The goal was reached and exceeded through the fundraising efforts of 14 “very busy Relay teams and our community supporters. Six of those 14 teams were brand new to Relay for Life,” Gardenheir said.
