Pelican hosts annual music festival, dirty-song contest

Posted: Thursday, April 25, 2002

Pelican's fourth annual Boardwalk Boogie will kick off May 16. The three-day music festival features dancing, live music and other activities.

Highlights of the festival are afternoon cafe concerts, open mike jams, square dancing and the infamous "Filthy Song and Slit Yer Wrist Song Contests."

The Panhandle Crabgrass Revival Band and The Bobb Family Band from Juneau, Ray-Jen Cajun from Homer and the New Romeo Loafers from Sitka will perform.

Pelican is on Lisianksi Inlet on the northwest corner of Chichagof Island in Southeast Alaska. With a population of about 150, Pelican has no roads and is built along a wooden boardwalk supported by pilings.

Boogie tickets may be purchased for $125 and quantities are limited. The ticket includes round-trip transportation and admission. An Allen Marine boat leaves the Auke Bay boat harbor at 5 p.m. Thursday, May 16. The boat will leave Pelican at 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 19, arriving at Auke Bay at approximately 7 p.m. The last 30 tickets have return trips booked on the Glacier Seal, and will return to Juneau the morning of Monday, April 20. Accommodations are not included in the price of the ticket.

Visitors may also make their own travel arrangements. Admission to the Boardwalk Boogie is $25.

Tickets are on sale from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Paradise Lunch across from Marine Park. For more information, visit or call the Boogie hotline at 586-2649.
