Dalton City Review
The four-day-long Southeast Alaska State Fair, held the last week of July, is one of several official regional blowouts, and thanks to its homespun feel it's a must for state fair fans. In addition to a logging show and a fisherman's rodeo, the fair has live music, rides on a vintage 1920 Herschal-Spillman carousel, local culinary arts, Native dances, totemic crafts, art, and photography.
