Solstice brings annual Memorial Park Cemetery tour

The summer solstice is often celebrated with evening hikes, late night cookouts or camp fires. But Saturday evening in Anchorage a crowd of people marked the longest day of the year in a graveyard at the 12th annual Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery tour. The 22-acre cemetery was formed in 1915 and is about half full with an average of 200 burials each year. Bruce and Audrey Kelley led this year’s tour.
