Juneau Appreciation Day - Saturday, May 9, 2015
It's true, the summer season has arrived in Juneau, as evidenced by the warmer weather, sightings of something round and yellow in the sky, and of course the first cruise ship of the season is on its way. As the season begins, it is tradition for downtown Juneau to give our local friends and customers a big 'thank you' for your ongoing support. Juneau Appreciation Day is dedicated to doing just that.
For Juneau Appreciation Day, there will be drawings, offers, snacks, and more throughout the downtown area. Also, the Juneau Maritime Festival takes place on the same day at Marine Park. Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 9.
