Only in Alaska would there be an outdoor carnival in WINTER. True, it may technically be the warmest it's been all winter... but it was still damn cold. And since it was on the coast (outer part of downtown), it was pretty windy when I went. I stupidly braved the cold (and complained about it later) to take these pictures, but I think it was worth it.
There were many a carnival operator simply looking super cold. I chatted with a few of them, instead of losing money at their games. It was a fun, albeit very chilly, visit.
It was very sparsely attended but those loyal attendees were bundled up for the cold!
