Free-Stuff-On-Your-BirthdayAlaskans love to celebrate. Whether it’s a traditional holiday or our unique attention to the summer solstice, we don’t miss a chance to throw a party! Birthdays are a fabulous thing, especially for Alaskans who do two (among many) things very well:

1. We love to throw a party.
2. We love to make friends.

Did you raise an eyebrow to making new friends? Sorry pals, it’s true. Alaskans are a friendly crew of people! Lots of us have traveled here from elsewhere, which makes a great conversation starter and commonality. Also, most people who live here happen to LOVE their state – which is another bond that brings us each together! Where there is friendship, there are birthday parties. Embrace it.

That being said, b-days can get a bit expensive with all that celebration! To ease the burn on your wallet, we’ve compiled a fun list of birthday plans that are FREE on your special day. Be sure to bookmark this blog, because you’re not going to want to miss out. Free birthday treats mean you can afford more celebration, you won’t be bummed with your budget the next day, and you have a GREAT back-up plan to celebrate your buddies year-round.

Lady Liberty, we’re sorry you couldn't go claim a free burger or dessert on July 4 – but thanks for the opportunity to celebrate YOU and the great nation we’re lucky to live in. Happy Birthday!
