Most locals look forward to Gold Rush Days! (If you’re new to the area or visiting, it’s definitely worth stopping by to watch the events and enjoy some great food.) Gold Rush Days is two days long, June 18th and 19th this year, and is filled with exciting logging and mining competitions to watch and participate in, exhibits, TONS of wonderful food and lots of family-fun activities. The event is held at Sandy Beach in Douglas (Savikko Park
504 St Anns Ave, Douglas, 99824). There’s a good amount of parking, but if you live or are staying close by, I would suggest the short walk. Weather pending of course! It is Juneau after all! 😉
