Happy New Year

2015 Happy New Year

Every year in Bettles we celebrate ringing in the New Year with a bang. The whole community comes together along with any visitors, to share dinner a special Dinner prepared by Roger at the Bettles Lodge. Fresh greens are flown in from somewhere warm to Fairbanks and onto Bettles to your plate, along with an hors d’oeuvres of Roger’s choice we traditionally have Alaskan King Crab & Prime Rib. Following dinner dance to the live music in the lobby as we wait to light the fireworks. Starting at 11 pm the fireworks display begins, at midnight the grand finale! Gather around a bonfire in front of the lodge to stay warm, viist with other guests and locals – ring in 2015 above the Arctic Circle!

Many New Year celebrations have been spent watching the Northern Lights and Fireworks at the same time.
