Celebrating the longest day of the year, the Nikiski Family Fun in the Midnight Sun festival begins with foot races and continues with variety of contests such as three-legged races, egg and water balloon tosses and a obstacle course. In between there are carnival games, food and music to round out the day-long festival.
Nikiski is blessed with an excellent indoor pool and recreation area. The Nikiski Pool is a dome-shaped building that features a large pool heated to 84 degrees with 136-foot-long waterslide, splash area, hot tubs and a visitor observation area. Outside there are picnic facilities and a playground.
