Gobsmacked! Yea, that’s it! Imagine my surprise when Cheri Spink, Events & Development Director, at the Anchorage Downtown Partnership contacted me about entertaining at the Summer Solstice Festival !
The distance, 3218 miles, was too far to drive, our schedule crowded, the expense considerable, what was she proposing I wondered? Turns out one of the Partnership members was a trucking company, and they were able to arrange shipping our LARGE crates by truck and ship. So Jerry and I flew out, while the solar powered Bubble Tower and two Giant Parade Puppets enjoyed a more leisurely journey.
The weather was perfect, the skies cleared up, the sun shone brightly . . . if not 24 hours a day, darn near! Shirt sleeve weather, though you might favor the sunny side of the street at times.
