WOW!!! They really know how to do a 4th of July celebration in Skagway!! They blocked off the main street from 2nd St to 7th St. They had 2 parades (a kids parade and an adult parade), running races for various age groups, tug of war contest, arm wrestling, egg toss, 3 on 3 basketball, a beer garden, street vendors, street musicians, plus more.
There were 4 cruise ships in town so there were lots of people to join in the celebration. All the events took place in that 5 block area so you did not have to go far to take it all in.
