Midnight sun baseball game
Every summer solstice, the midnight sun baseball game starts in the Growden Memorial Park in Fairbanks at 10:30 pm. It typically ends around 1:30 am the next morning. No floodlights are needed as the sun only barely goes below the horizon later that night and it does not get dark at all. There is daylight all 24 hours of the day.
This tradition started in 1906. The midnight sun baseball game is one of the 10 must-have-seen in baseball. I recommend to wear a mosquito net like is shown in the last photo of this post, jeans and boots for enjoying the game. You don’t want to be a midnight snack. When I watched the game a couple of years ago they were very distracting.
While this outfit would work for a game at the East Coast in the afternoon, it would provide a feast for mosquitoes during the midnight sun game. 😉
For this OOTD, I combined items, which you have seen before, in a new way. You saw the striped T-shirt and printed skirt as well as the jacket and pointy-toe flats. Do you always wear your items in the same outfit or do you try to combine them to new looks every time?
