Hero Game Registration FormThe time has come to sign your team up to compete in the 2018 Hero Games at the Downtown Summer Solstice Festival! Deadline for team sign up is June 22nd at NOON. Hero Games will take place on June 23, 12 pm – 4pm. This year, we will be hosting the games on F St between 6th & 7th Avenue in Downtown Anchorage near Humpy’s. The awards ceremony will follow.
The Hero Games includes crowd-pleasing events such as the tug of war, obstacle course races, truck pushing relays and more. Teams that traditionally participate in the games are from the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, the Air Guard, the Air Reserves, the Alaska Army National Guard, the Coast Guard, the Anchorage Fire Department, and the Anchorage Police Department.
The Anchorage Police Department may move its headquarters to a prime piece of real estate: The sleek former Alaska legislative office building on Fourth Avenue downtown.
On Tuesday, police officials revealed negotiations on a lease deal with the Anchorage Community Development Authority, the city parking and redevelopment authority that said three weeks ago it wants to buy the building.
The deal would mean that more than 150 police employees, including detectives, would move from crammed headquarters at Tudor and Elmore roads into offices at 716 W. Fourth Ave. State lawmakers vacated the building in 2016 after a judge ruled the Alaska Legislature’s lease there was illegal.
Officials said the move would improve public safety downtown and build momentum for revitalization efforts.

Mikey Huff dreamt up The Wool Sock Project as a way to learn more about the people that call Downtown home and give them something to make their days a little brighter. Huff photographs and takes the story of all the unsheltered folks he interacts with and then leaves them with a care package that includes wool socks. Huff continues the outreach of our Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd. ambassadors, by treating our community members with kindness and respect, and by sharing their stories.
We ask that you make a donation to The Wool Sock Project by visiting HERE! or by donating socks, hand warmers, foot warmers, snacks, or other items to be included in the care packages to our office.
Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd. owns an inventory of tents, stages, tables, chairs, bubble machines, an inflatable kayak pool and more, all of which are available to rent for your next special event.
