On the Fourth of July, all of Anchorage turns red, white, and blue. Because of the midnight sun, the celebration is even better. Starting on July 3rd, it continues till the end of the next day. Check out the full-night party by Eagle River, the festive parade, baseball games, loud music, and dances all day long…One particular tradition of Anchorage is the so-called Girdwood Forest Fair. Visitors can buy hand-crafted items, taste exotic Alaskan foods, and join the annual Forest Fair Parade. And of course, the main thing that makes Independence Day so unforgettable—a great fireworks show! The extra daylight hours make it an exceptionally beautiful experience!
