Two festive community events are planned to celebrate the inauguration of Anchorage Mayor-elect Dave Bronson and the new direction for Anchorage.
- A thank you party for volunteers and supporters of the Bronson for Mayor campaign takes place June 7, from 5-7 pm. That party is at La Mex Restaurant at 8330 King Street.
- The official Inauguration Day party, which will take place on July 1, just after Bronson is sworn in and becomes mayor of Anchorage. The event will be on the Delaney Park Strip downtown, with a band, food trucks, activities for kids and places for families to spread out on the lawns with their picnics. More details are coming, organizers said, adding that they wanted it to be festive, informal, open to everyone, and multicultural to reflect Anchorage’s diverse community.
The celebration phase of the transition to a new government in Anchorage is being paid for by donors through a nonprofit 501(c)(3) set up by the Bronson camp. The nonprofit website is the place where people can donate funds to help offset expenses for the festivities. Donations are tax deductible. Anchoragemayor.com
