Running of the Reindeer

Just like the running of the bulls in Barcelona, Anchorage has it's version. People pay good money for the opportunity to sprint down 4th Avenue with several reindeer. It's all part of Fur Rondy - a winter carnival, party, and sled dog racing - held for a week before the ceremonial start of the Iditarod.

Check out this link for more pictures of this event.
