The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will celebrate “Once in a Blue Moon” Friday, July 31 at 7 p.m., with a variety show featuring local individuals and groups performing moon-themed music and acts.
The event will include a gallery showing of night sky photographs by Linda Cook from her “Starry Night” collection.
“We haven’t seen a Blue Moon since Aug. 2012,” said organizer Tela Skinner, “so this will a be great opportunity to mark the occasion.”
Performers will include Sherrie Wolf, Trillium Blue, the Ferrets, the Rag Tag Singers, and Rosa Erlebach. There will also be a moon song sing-along. Gary Seelig will emcee.
The event will be a fundraiser for the Hoffman Center. Admission will be $10
A “blue moon” is rare because it happens only when a second full moon appears in any particular month.
