The state of Alaska was admitted into the United States union in 1959 by President Eisenhower. Alaska Day was designated October 18th of that year by Governor William Egan for celebration of the land’s history and has become a yearly event. There is traditionally an Alaska Day Festival during which residents and tourists can enjoy a parade led by the pipe and drum regiment of the Seattle Fire Department, a ball with music by the Fort Wainwright’s 9th Army Band, historical reenactments, panel discussions, and occasional visits by governors and senators.
