Celebration 2008 began Thursday morning with a grand entrance procession of fifty Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian dance groups down Juneau’s Willoughby Avenue. John Ryan produced an audio postcard from the procession. The Mt. Saint Elias Dancers from Yakutat kick it off as they get ready to lead the procession in their full regalia.
