The University of Alaska Southeast will host Community Day on Campus this Saturday, May 18, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

Community Day is a free and festive day of music, exhibits, arts, food, information and activities for the whole family in the Mourant Courtyard at UAS. This annual event is collaboration between Juneau Jazz & Classics, the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council and the University of Alaska Southeast.

New this year from UAS are a duck racing booth, cotton candy sales and a first-ever Community Day Dunk Tank. Community members willing to take a dip in the tank are encouraged to bring a change of clothes and a towel. UAS Mascot Spike Whale should be on hand to shake flippers with the kiddies.

Also new this year is a JAHC-organized Mosquito Market happening in the lower parking lot of the UAS Campus. Bring your stuff, sell out of the trunk of your car or bring a table for your merchandise. People who would like to participate in the market or on the lawn are invited to sign up and there is no charge. Registration is here: jahc.org/community-day-on-campus/

In addition, the new USDA Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, Juneau Forestry Sciences Lab, will be open for tours from noon to 3 p.m., with a ribbon-cutting and house oosts dedication ceremony at 3 p.m. This new facility is located adjacent to campus, on the path from the Library to Back Loop Road.
