With fireworks and parades, there’s plenty to see in Juneau and Douglas over the July 4th holiday — and quite a sound track to go with it, provided by the Juneau Volunteer Marching Band.
It was a festive Friday on Juneau Afternoon with a preview of the band’s concert this Saturday at Marine Park.
- What caused the Taku River to rise to record levels? And does the threat of flooding remain?
- A visit with Christine Lewis, a Juneau artist who has a passion for painting outdoors.
