OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside Days of Art Committee Chairmen are gathering creative minds and talented local community volunteers Nov. 3 to start planning the 17th ODA for 2009. 
The event will be held April 19 and April 20 on Pier View Way, in the Civic Center fountain area and Ditmar Street. Artists from as far away as Big Bear and Los Angeles area come to display their art along with a list of live performers.
