Busy Weekend

Juneau Arts and Culture Center sponsors Concerts in the Park on Friday evenings. We've been lucky enough that the weather has been cooperating so that we can enjoy these events outside at Marine Park. There are ususally three acts that get about 30 mintues to perform. This week we had some belly dancing by the Daughters of the New Moon, a rock band called Boobie Trap, and some broadway show tunes sung by the Juneau Lyric Opera.

Probably the hit of the night was the lyric opera group singing "George of the Jungle" complete with chest beating by the tall guy shown here, in the middle, in the back. This brought a lot of applause.

Also happening this last weekend is what they called "Gold Rush Days". Not to be confused with Golden Days in Fairbanks, this is more about mining and logging and the games that reflect activities that go along with the job. Saturday was the mining games and Sunday was the logging events. More later!
