Tanglewood,
I believe we saw you in Wrangell same time as myself this July. We were moored on the Reliance Dock. We come to Wrangell every year for the Fourth. Taking nothing away from Petersburg, Scary has made the main point. Both towns focus on children on the Fourth. Very little commercial or "All about Me" participation.
The Wrangell Queen candidates sell tickets at $1.00 with percentage of funds to cover the cost of the contest, drawing funds ($5000.00 1st pick and then lessor amounts) the major amount of funds is dedicated to the next year Fourth fireworks (1/2) and News Year fireworks (1/2) Are you ready??
The Queen contest raises over $65,000.00 each year. This from a local population of 1800 souls. The fireworks starts LATE about 11 PM for complete darkness. When it starts, WOW, for the next hour you are sharing a fireworks display second only to the Boston Pops display.
Don't miss it if you in the area. Plan on a early mooring as we are not the only boaters who come for this occasion. Viewing is excellent from the water as the display is shot in front of town on the water front.
Enjoy
Al

Yup, that's me. We'll be here for a few more days. My exhaust elbow wasn't sufficiently supported, and after 500 hrs one of the turbo mount studs broke and coolant started showering the engine room. Fortunately this happened as we were on our final leg into Juneau. The engine never even ran hot, but wow what a mess when I checked the ER after arrival.

Wifey B: Even when one gets stuck somewhere it's great to be cruising. You won't run out of things to do or see in Juneau during these few days.

Agreed. It's all part of the package.

They love their children in Pburg.

And the fourth. But nuts about the forth is Alaska wide. The forth starts on June 4th and ends around the 4th of August in western Alaska.

Yes, they are celebrating the stars, stripes, and daylight.
