Photos: It's Beaver Round Up Time!

Mar 22, 2018

Clear skies, bright sun and warm temperatures had some peeling off coats and hats at the 60th annual Beaver Round Up parade. Spirits were high as decked out floats streamed through the streets of Dillingham. The costume fun run and ever-competitive outhouse race rounded out the downtown kick off event. Here are the photos and the schedule of the rest of the week's festivities.
