The community of Kongiganak celebrated the 4th of July with events including a kids kayak race, intramural basketball, indoor and outdoor activities, adult night games, and raffles.
There is a video on their page, Kangirnarmiut Caurallrit that they shared with the Delta Discovery, quyana.
The kids looked like they were having a blast while wearing their red “Wear it Alaska” personal floatation devices and paddling their double-bladed paddles on a small lake. Folks were gathered along the pond to cheer them on!
Kongiganak would like to thank the following for their donation, and making our 4th of July a fun success for our community: Grant Aviation, Donlin Gold, Calista Corp., Puvurnaq Power, A&L Variety Shoppe, Kong Rec Committee and our volunteers.
