Folks & Friends


Nome is a happening place. Well, maybe not as happening as other Alaskan cities, but much more than others. Last weekend, Nome celebrated summer solstice with its annual Mid Night Sun Folk Festival.

Mid Night Sun is not just one exciting day of activities, but encompasses 3 days of music, vendor fairs and raft races. Nomites and visitors alike enjoy a weekend of seeing old friends, making new friends and enjoying the talent of Nome. I was incredibly lucky as Meghan Mahoney took time from her lazy summer schedule (she's a teacher) and flew in to share in all the festivities.

We had a great time listening to Nome musicians, enjoying the vendor fair, and stuffing our faces with delicious yummies at the Folk Fest Bake Sale, which we were asked to organize.

This week, we are off to Juneau for the 4th of July!
