The beach is magical any time of the year. But Lincoln City, on the central Oregon Coast, is a magic place to spend spring break, thanks to the annual Festival of Illusions at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. The FOI is a week full of evening magic shows and fun day camps for youth, all held at the LCCC, 540 NE Hwy. 101, in Lincoln City.
Cha Cha and her assistant, Laura Green the Juggling Queen, are planning a DIY Magic Show after the last camp, at 11 am on Friday, March 27. Participation is free to any magic camp student, and admission is free as well.
Okaidja’s unique artistic vision has led him to combine his native rhythms with unforeseen pairings of musical flavors. His sound is a spicy fusion of spirited Ghanaian music with diverse cross-cultural influences. He is a dynamic vocalist, a gifted multi-instrumentalist, and an exultant dancer. For this coastal performance, he will be accompanied by 2-3 other musicians, playing a variety of stringed and percussion instruments. With help from the Studio to Schools committee, funded by a grant from the Oregon Community Foundation, Okaidja will also perform an outreach concert at Oceanlake Elementary School.
