This past week has been the annual Fairbank's celebration of Golden Days. A look back on the origin of Fairbanks and its Gold Rush era. On Saturday Josh, Mother and I attended the parade and I thought you might enjoy a glace of some Fairbanks culture:
Alaska or Bust, a flat bad trailer carrying the city's line dancing group. Mother is so excited to share this with her Line Dancing class back in Texas. These were the flags that were handed out, pitiful if you ask me. Isn't anything made here anymore?
There was the army band and the big rubber ducky race
An old sourdough pioneer and his donkey
This truck just made me laugh, I can't believe it runs.
Our UAF hockey team, the Nanooks
Humm, this sign is so true!!
This lady and her husband rode these bikes the entire parade route, amazing.
The classic Golden day prison, the sheriff and just one look at the many "saloon girls" that we saw, the golden rush wasn't a modest one at all.
