Did you know...
... that today is Festival of the Midnight Sun? The people of
Nome, Alaska, celebrate June 22, the longest day of the year,
where the sun shines for better than 22 hours a day in the peak of summer. Nome celebrates with a street dance, blanket
toss, barbecue, Monte Carlo night, Eskimo dances, a parade,
and a mock bank hold-up and jail. A river raft race has been
held at midnight on June 21 since the 1960s. Celebrate with
Nome! :-)
