One thought on “things to do: May 31 – June 2

  1. Awesome post! I’ll add our little Country Fair to this list as well! We are having our 3rd annual Country Fair out Mile 7 Wasilla-Fishhook Road. Look for the bright blue signs. It is a fund raising event for our church (Saint Herman’s Orthodox Church) and we’ll have lots of fun games, petting zoo, trading post, kid corral, awesome food, old fashioned soda fountain, sweet shop, raffle (with a rifle and iPod), silent auction, duct tape sward arena, and more. This is such a fun event and we love to meet new people in our community! It’s from 11am-5pm June 1st, this Saturday!
