Dozens of community members gathered to celebrate the third annual Solstice Tree Tour at Kincaid Park on Sunday.

The free tour, hosted by the Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage, gave people the chance to see decorated holiday trees on Kincaid Park’s Mize Loop trail, a 2.5-kilometer tour, by foot or ski.

“December is hard with long, dark days, so we are excited to give Anchorage a reason to get out on the trails," Sara Miller, the event coordinator and NSAA board member, said in a press release on the event. "It’s a chance for many to try Nordic skiing and see the winter wonderland that Kincaid offers. The community involvement with this event has been overwhelming!”

Free hot drinks for kids and s’mores were served at the tour, along with ski demos for beginners.
