The year starts with the 1,000 mile Yukon Quest Sled Dog Race, followed by the World Ice Art Championships. With Winter melting into Spring the bird migration is the top attraction on everyone's list. An exciting time to look upward while the flocks of birds soar into the season of the Midnight Sun. The long days of Summer welcome instructor's and participants to the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival for two weeks of concerts.
Following the entertainment, flocks of Sandhill Cranes come in preparation for the migration south. Photographer's from all over venture to Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge for the Sandhill Crane Festival, the final rights to Fall.
The spectacular gathering of the Sandhill Cranes reminds everyone of the Aurora Borealis, ah yes, the Northern Lights are soon to follow.
