Music, art worldwide at Lakeside festival

SAYBROOK TOWNSHIP —  A celebration of folk arts from around the world is the theme of the “Big, Wide, Wonderful World” festival Saturday at Lakeside High School.

Spokesman Maryann Jordan said, “People from the area who express themselves through the arts will fill the day with activities.”

The event takes place from noon to 7 p.m., with an arts and crafts fair, musicians, a food court, the Ashtabula County Brass Band and Erie Heights concert and Ashtabula County Choral Music Society.

Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $2 for children 6 to 12, with those under 6 getting in for free.

The arts and crafts fair will feature area artists demonstrating, displaying and selling their hand-made artistry which will include jewelry-making, knitting, crocheting, quilting, clay pot people, tatting, quilting, hand sewing, paper crafts and cards, hand-painted glass, drawings, ceramic pieces, goat milk soap, soy candles and more. The Finnish-American Heritage Association will also display ethnic costumers, art work and historical items.

A full-sized quilt created in a log cabin design and donated by Lori Overy of the American Quilt Shop at 588 Harbor St., Conneaut, will be raffled to benefit the Ashtabula County Choral Music Society. It will be on display at the fair, as will two white oak Adirondack chairs built by the Edgewood High School Industrial Arts Department. There is also a package donated by the Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake.

Tickets are available from Ashtabula County Choral Music Society members and at the festival.

  • wd heat rocky 9 .jpg ‘The Rocky Horror Show’ is well performed, funny and worth seeing

    Mention “The Rocky Horror Show” and almost everyone has an opinion, whether they've seen the movie or stage adaptation or not. It has been a cult classic for over three decades, since its release in 1975, and it has garnered plenty of criticism and negative commentary. Because public reaction to this extremely odd piece of musical comedy has been so strong for so long, many with an opinion have never even seen the movie or play. And many certainly do not understand that it is a spoof of shock theater. Yet they continue to berate the show as immoral and lewd.
