Ongoing Share Your Spark Program

In addition to hosting the 4th of July Parade this year, we're also excited to be hosting Share Your Spark again!

Share Your Spark is a community event that encourages businesses and residents to share their spark by decorating their storefronts and homes in red, white, and blue to commemorate Independence Day.

Groups can also choose to clean up a stretch of road or local beach, and individuals or families could plant a tree or help neighbors. All are encouraged to shop locally for decorations and prizes will be awarded for decorations in the categories of Best Business, Best Non-Profit, Best House, and Best Condo/Apartment. To participate submit address and a photo to conventions@sitkachamber.com, or Facebook.com/SitkaChamber by Monday, June 28.
