Thanks for the support and 💗 @thefermentedalaskan! Thrilled to share your inspiration and shout out. Repost: I’m happy to say it is deck weather here in Alaska! The sun is out again and it feels oh so good! Big shout out to @recoveralaska who did some work in the community this month for Sobriety Awareness! I made this mocktail in support! You don’t need to be tipsy to have fun, so here is something fun 💖🎉 @zip_kombucha Blueberry Kombucha My homemade blueberry jasmine syrup Fresh lime Splash of tonic *this is summer in a glass and so refreshing! I made this for the NACE event last week to give people a non alcoholic option. Let’s focus on getting prettier drinks for the DDs! They deserve it! Cheers! #alaska #sober #siplocal #drinks #mocktails #dd #blueberry #kombucha #spring #pretty
If you don’t want to drink, Recover Alaska is hosting a mocktail garden, featuring fun and creative nonalcoholic drinks, for people of all ages!
Watch first responders engage in a series of athletic competitions during the Hero Games! With traditional contests such as the obstacle course, contests relating to their occupation like the “stretcher carry”, and fun contests like the donut eating contest, you’re sure to get caught up in the competitive spirit as you cheer on your favorite.
From a giant sandbox to face painting to a petting zoo, there is plenty at the Summer Solstice Festival for kids to do! Even parents will want in on some of these activities. Don’t miss the puppet show performed by Steven’s Puppets or the Circus performance from Chataqua Community Actors.
