Country music lovers are in for a special treat early next month — three days of performances from artists like Brad Paisley, Eric Church and Dierks Bentley on the Oregon coast.

The Cape Blanco Country Music Festival will be held on private land three miles east of Cape Blanco Lighthouse in Sixes, Ore., about five miles north of Port Orford. The festival runs Aug. 1–3.

Cape Blanco’s country music festival is hosted by Bi-Mart and is the coastal cousin of Bi-Mart’s Willamette Country Music Festival in Brownsville, Ore. The Willamette Country Music Festival is Aug. 15-17.

Imaginations rule at performing arts camp

Before Lighthouse Repertory Theater wraps up its summer performing arts day camp, students will test their acting skills in front of an audience.

But the program won’t stop at acting. Youngsters will become playwrights as well as set and costume designers, said LRT President Nina Burgess. They will learn about character development, the components of a story and the concepts of conflict and resolution. The program will culminate with a performance at the Del Norte County Fair, Burgess said.

“We’re not taking from a set piece of something that’s in the system already,” she said. “We are creating it, and at the end of camp we’re going to be formatting different storybooks for the kids so they can take these stories home with them.”

They had only been there for about two hours, but already they had built domes, seashell walls, bridges and a double moat.

While her cousins reinforced the structure with more sand, 8-year-old Jadelynn Hintz became a one-girl bucket brigade.

“Get out of her way!” one of the adults shouted. 

Ten trips later, the moat sprang to life and water flowed back to the creek.

More crafts this year at arts fair

Local artists showed off their talent with paint, clay, wire and gemstone at this year’s Art Festival on Thursday and Friday.

Hosted by the Coast Redwoods Art Association, the festival expanded its focus to include crafts such as homemade jewelry and handmade clothing. But, according to Bunny Phillips, chairwoman of the 2014 show, finding enough artists to fill the building was tough.

“I talked to every person I thought would fit in. I went to the Farmers Market and the Azalea Festival,” said Phillips, who operates the Crescent Harbor Art Gallery. “I was lucky to get 25.”

Church Notebook: Think about inviting a visitor to church

As I write this, (on Thursday), it’s a bit earlier than usual today due to the holiday. I look out my window and see a breezy but sunny day and think it looks like we just might be going to have nice weather for the Fourth for a change. It seems like so many of them since I’ve returned to Crescent City have been less than desirable, weather-wise, with many of our visitors voicing disappointment it in the past.

Traffic, of course, has picked up big time, so once again, as is my habit, I remind us all about being more alert and courteous than usual. People come from all over for our Fourth, and we should make them feel welcome. We need to remember that out of that number, there will be some “newbies” who will be confused by our streets, and may well ask for directions to this or that.
