Sitkans filled the streets in celebration of national independence. Kids chased candy; the Coast Guard marched in lockstep, and the Sitka Fine Arts Camp pooled its artistic talent to paint banners and signs expressing discontent with the looming elimination of the State Council on the Arts.
Remember! Sitka's fireworks show takes place at 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, JULY 3, in the Sitka Channel. Excellent viewing can be had at the street party in Totem Square, or on the O'Connell bridge. See the complete schedule of events.
