4-H ANNUAL SOURDOUGH PANCAKE BREAKFAST | 9 AM
Kodiak Elks Lodge Upstairs | 9 AM – 12 PM
Join Kodiak 4-H on Memorial Day as they serve you sourdough pancakes from a starter that dates back to well over 100 years ago. This will be their 34th year serving the community a pancake breakfast (to include ham and fruit) and their 4-H families couldn’t be more excited to see you there. They hope to have face painting for kids there too!
LIVE MUSIC FEATURING “HOME BRU” | 10 AM
Crab Fest Stage on the Mall | 10 AM – 2 PM
“Home Bru”, composed of Matt & Chelsea Brunoehler (hence the Bru), Evan Coombs, and Zac Bowers, is a recently
‘re-formed’ band of Coast Guard affiliated folks. We all met in Elizabeth City, NC. We play an eclectic swath of music owing to our unusual instrumentation (banjo + drums) and love of everything from ZZ Top to traditional Irish folk tunes. The band’s sound is heavily influenced by Matt and Chelsea’s love for singing together (lots of harmony), and the Americana experience of moving every 3-5 years for 20 years to places with distinct cultures, scenes, tastes, and genres. Simply put, we like lots of music and can’t wait to share that love with you. New to Alaska, we are very excited to be included in this year’s Crab Festival and hope you will see much more of us around town in the near future.
