Opening reception tonight, March 12, for the 284 Main St. Gallery Spring Gift Show, launched the weekend of events for Point Arena’s first annual Flower Power Festival and Daffodil Explosion. The opening was well attended, great craft items by local artisans. Large pots full of blooming daffodils greet visitors in the entry garden,
The festival continues tomorrow, Sat., the 13th with a Mural Scavenger Hunt–a fun way to explore the many murals of PA; a SCRABBLE tournament, cioppino feed at The Cove and at Arena Theater; and a night of rock n’ roll at the theater featuring the Ralph Woodsen Experience, performing a tribute to Jimi Hendricks.
On Sunday, the 14th, the “Wind & Whale Celebration” features The Berkeley Kite Wranglers performing at Point Arena Lighthouse with a giant kite exhibition. Large hand-painted silk kites by Madeline Kibbe are on display in the Fog Signal Building. Visitors can climb to the top of the 115 ft. tower for the best vantage point to spot gray whales as they migrate north.
