Looks in the Lobby: Photos from Oscar Night in Eureka

Posted By on Wed, Feb 12, 2020 at 4:49 PM

How did you do on your Oscar pool? At the Eureka Theater and Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission's red carpet night, smart predictions (and luck with the raffle) won folks chocolate Oscars. But the real competition was in the lobby, where volunteers served drinks, Michael Dayvid served tunes and attendees served looks.

Swing Time Travel: Photos and Video from the Taiko Swingposium

Posted By on Sun, Feb 9, 2020 at 11:41 AM

Last weekend, the San Jose Taiko Swingposium Immersive Theater Experience's On the Road show transformed the Bayside Community Hall into a World War II-era dance hall in a Japanese-American incarceration camp. While under armed guard and having lost their homes, possessions and rights as Americans, those in the camps played music and held dances like these within their barbed-wire confines to maintain a sense of hope and community.

The "immersive" part of the show? Audience members and performers mingled and danced throughout the evening within a living-history portrayal of a teenage love story in the camp retold by actors playing prisoners.  Music for the three sold-out weekend performances was provided by the taiko drummers and the Humboldt State University Jazz Orchestra. See the slideshow and video below for highlights of the event.

Running Wild: Photos from the Clam Beach Run

Posted By on Mon, Feb 3, 2020 at 11:39 AM

The weather gods delivered a calm, dry Saturday morning for around 700 participants in the 55th annual Trinidad to Clam Beach Run Honoring Ford Hess. The race and fun run featured 5 3/4-mile and 8 3/4-mile options starting north of Trinidad — the "fun" for the longer races includes a wet crossing of Little River along the scenic route. A 3-mile race/walk option ended in Trinidad. Check out the slideshow below for highlights of the day.
