Amazing to see the 83 sleds sliding on the 4th street in downtown Anchorage. Fantastic feeling with all the people around. This is the biggest event in winter time in Alaska.

Great opportunity to see the Ceremonial Start in Anchorage on the first Saturday of March and then travel to Willow on Sunday to see the Restart of the Iditarod Race. Both events are family friendly and free.
