We hope you had a wonderful Solstice weekend. Solstice is a holiday that is somewhat unique to our town in the sense that we truly enjoy and take pride in celebrating the longest days of the year. That is partly due to the fact that while living in Fairbanks we also have experienced the other, more unpleasant side of the solstice spectrum in December when we have less than 4 hours of daylight. That’s why when the time comes the people of our small town know how to take full advantage of the 24 hours of sunshine! In general, it’s also a fascinating phenomenon that people from all over the world come to experience and we definitely throw quite the party for those who choose to do so. Solstice week leads us nearly directly into the 4th of July festivities and we’ll take this time to give you an early heads up that we’ll be closed on the 4th to celebrate America’s Birthday with our ohana’s, but we’ll be having some awesome sales on the 3rd to get you ready to rock your 4th of July!
This year it started with Fairbanks’ new addition of Third Thursday Downtown which happened to fall on June 21st this month. Third Thursday is a street fair on the third Thursday of every month that closes off about 2 blocks of downtown Fairbanks with vendors, food trucks and activities. Pakalolo Supply Company made its first appearance at last weeks event. We had a nice spot right in front of Lavelle’s Taphouse with cannabis accessories, apparel, educational information as well as CBD coffee and CBD energy shots. We had a blast getting some face time with those who may not take the trip to the local cannabis shops on a regular basis as well as seeing some of our regulars out enjoying the sunshine. That same night every year is the legendary Goldpanners Midnight Sun game where our local baseball team plays 9 innings (or more) under the midnight sun continuing the game past midnight with no artificial lights. Then we have the Midnight Sun Run on the closest Saturday to June 21st followed by the full version of the street fair downtown on Sunday. In reality, it is the biggest holiday in Fairbanks! Get out there and enjoy it because Solstice also unfortunately marks the day we start losing daylight ever so slowly…
