First Friday, Statehood Celebration, Fourth of July, Friday Concert in the Park - what a day (and night)

I think I've mentioned before that the Fourth of July is a big celebration in Juneau. It usually starts on the third and continues on. This year Juneau chose this weekend to celebrate Statehood so it seems like there are extra events going on.

The weather has been incredible! Its been in the mid 70s and low 80s with a cloudless sky that has really drawn the crowds outside!

We went to the Concert in the Park which was combined with a community picnic. Hamburgers and hot dogs for everyone!

This was one of the grills that they used - isn't it huge!

Juneau is also the gathering place for the International Juneau Family Reunion. I understand that several generations of Joe Juneau decendents have been gathering here for a couple of weeks. There are a few still living in the community along with a large contingent of Kowee decendents. Here's one of the Juneau's at Gold Rush Days joking around with some guy in a blue shirt. he he
