Beachcomber Royalty

Court Queen Brooklyn McElroy, Prince Matthew Shepherd and Princess Akashia Reich of the Beachcomber Days Royal Court were crowned during Waldport’s 63rd Annual Beachcomber Days last weekend. They just graduated and will each be receiving a scholarship to further their education.

Revelers turned out for live music like Creedence Revelation and Roosterfish Reunion, the Beachcomber Days Parade, and fire dancers while exploring 61 vendors. Crowds watched a “Jaws of Life” and Lifeflight demonstration at the old high school field. The theme this year was “Legends of The Sea,” with slug races, watermelon-eating contests, bake sale, kids fair, a car and bike show and more. (Courtesy photo)
