The fifth annual Pirates of the Pacific Festival had its most successful weekend this year, with between 10,000 and 12,000 attendees.

“If you take nothing else away from this evening — please, take Jesus home with you,” Pastor Mike Quesada said last Friday evening on the stage of Azalea Park’s amphitheater on opening day of Streets of Gold. 

Quesada gave his testimony before an audience of more than 100 people who came to hear about eternal matters, such as what happens after a person dies.

A testimony is when an individual recalls the decisions and life changes that a person decides to make when calling on Jesus Christ to become their personal Lord and Savior, Quesada said.

The public was able to visit booths by other rescue agencies — Brookings and Harbor fire departments, Brookings police, Curry County and Del Norte County sheriff’s departments, Cal-Ore Life Flight, U.S. Forest Service and the Coast Guard Auxiliary — and tour the station and boats.

The Coast Guard’s presence at the Port of Brookings Harbor has been in place since 1961.

“Annie Jr.,” winner of seven Tony awards, Annie, is based on Harold Gray’s comic strip “Little Orphan Annie,” the story of an orphan whose journey to find her parents takes her from the home of a billionaire bachelor to the president’s office.


Online contestants vie for festival tickets

Before Brookings’ first Wild Rivers Music Festival launches at Azalea Park Aug. 15 and 16, music fans will get a chance to win free tickets via an online contest by the Curry Coastal Pilot, or get discount tickets through Rogue Credit Union.

Fans can also win tickets and get a sneak listen to some of the festival’s nationally-touring acts during a series of on-air interviews next week on KURY Radio 95.3 FM. (See schedule in box)

“The support of the community and our sponsors has been amazing,” said festival co-coordinator Gordon Later. “Online tickets are selling fast and we can’t guarantee how many will be left the day of the festival, so we encourage people to get their discounted tickets now.”
