In Kotzebue today, the start of the 1st Annual Arctic Spring Festival got underway, although a few events had to be postponed because…well it’s the arctic. Maija Lukin is the regional communications manager for the NANA regional corporation. Lukin says a few days ago Kotzebue residents were walking around in t shirts and now its snow pants and goggles again. But she says that’s ok. There’s a festive mood in the community as the Kobuk 440 gets underway.
