Thus summer solstice festival is part music festival, part art fair, part food trucks and all fun under the midnight sun in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Celebrating the Summer Solstice
Held in downtown Fairbanks, with a population of around 30,000, this festival is like the whole town comes out for a party, to celebrate the midnight sun. Teenagers and young families. Old people and military personal from the nearby bases. Everyone seems to know someone they run into for the first time since the winter.
I walked around a lot, taking it all in, bought a few gifts, grabbed a beer (or two or three) and had a blast.
