Storytelling Festival Returns to Ocean Springs

The Mississippi Press (Ocean Springs, MI) , October 10, 2004


Hilarious happenings, scary tales and situations that inspire hope or warm the heart. These are some of the themes that will abound when Ocean Springs' Great Oaks Storytelling Festival returns on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 15 and 16 at the Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center of Arts and Education.

"We'll have stories for adults, families and children of all ages," said festival director Chris Vinsonhaler, who originated the festival in Ocean Springs about 10 years ago.

Betty Magee, executive director of the Mary C., said the festival is another opportunity for the restored facility to be used to enhance the education and culture of the people of Ocean Springs.
