Live music is headlined by the Deadphish Orchestra with Aloha Bluegrass Band  and Elena Lukina. Music will start at noon Saturday and Sunday and musicians will play until 8:00 PM. Both days will also feature the Alyeska Blueberry Pie-eating contest. Kids and Adults compete against each other to see who can scarf down their pie the fastest. The Blueberry Festival is also a great time to purchase any retail gear you need for the upcoming winter season or to score a great deal on summer apparel with our sidewalk sale. The Alyeska Mountain Shop and Glacier Gallery & Gift have great deals on all items. Want to go blueberry picking and get a scenic view of the hotel base area? Chair 7 will be running from 3 – 6 both Saturday and Sunday for FREE rides. Families can ride the chair up and hike down in search of these tasty treats.
