On Saturday Night, come to a Dance Party with live music by the Unfaithful Lovers.
And on Sunday night, come out to an epic Bonfire Feast with spaghetti, bonfire and DJ. Non climbers rate is $20. The bonfire will be held at Oldtown – take a right off the Richardson highway just before the Valdez Glacier Stream Bridge and look for signs.
