Fur Rondy native arts and crafts market in Dimond Mall, Anchorage Alaska 2012. Ran into old friend from the 1970’s and her daughter, who is this years Rondy Queen! Small world. I will update this post with her name as soon as I talk to her mother. Meant to post this in March. And I had good sales too. Fur Rondezvous is a ten day event in Anchorage at the end of February and beginning of March where people can get out and do stuff. The 1000 mile Iditarod sled dog race starts at this time downtown. My favorite event is the running of the reindeer, which is sort of like running of the bulls, but no one gets gored.
