Mary A. Castillo Pirates took over the Laguna Beach Boys and Girls Club this week as part of the "theme days"that children can help organize throughout the summer. The members ran through the building, eagerly searching for hidden treasures. The prize? Many long, summer days spent with friends, said Susie Hird, program director. "There are so many programs this summer it's hard to keep track of them all," she said. Although attendance drops from an average 150 children per day to only 65, the club still bustles with activity.

Laguna Beach is in the process of its annual transformation from a small, local beach and surf town to a summer destination for sun-and-art seekers from around the world. You could call it the season of "Festivus," (with due recognition to the "Seinfeld" show for inventing the name). This weekend, the "big three" art festivals will throw open their doors with fanfare to welcome what they hope will be throngs of the art-loving and art-buying public for two months of exciting and exhausting "festivalling."

Opening Day ceremonies Saturday included the traditional tree lighting by Mayor Kelly Boyd — one of his last official and most heartwarming acts before handing over the gavel to his successor to be named at the December council meeting. “It was magical,” said Sawdust General Manager Tom Klingenmeier . “Listening to the people and hearing the oohs and aahs from the children when the lights went on and the three machines were pumping out snow was perfect.

Holding his pristine white hat in one hand, Seaman Nick McConnell — a recent graduate of the Coast Guard Academy — watched kids create valentines for the U.S. Military. On three successive Wednesdays in January, Top of the World Elementary students had the opportunity to go to the multipurpose room during lunch to participate in a variety of arts and crafts as part of the free, PTA-sponsored Local Color program. McConnell’s mother is a kindergarten aide at the school; her son, a 2003 graduate of Laguna Beach High School, was at home on nine days’ leave before departing for his new digs at the Coast Guard military base on Kodiak Island, Alaska — the largest Coast Guard base in the world.

Cindy Frazier It's all a matter of taste. The city's three major art festivals open this week, turning Laguna Beach into a destination for art lovers and truly providing "something for everybody" in the realm of art. Summer art festivals have been a Laguna tradition since the Great Depression in the 1930s. Over the years, the three festivals have engaged in a friendly competition as they vie for the admiring eyes-- and dollars -- of the public.
