Alaskans can picnic with Sarah Palin over the next three days before she steps down as governor.
It's an annual tradition for Alaska governors and includes free food, live entertainment, games and activities for children and "much more," according to a press release from Palin's office.
The first is today at IditaPark in Palin's hometown of Wasilla from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The next one is Saturday at the Delaney Park Strip in Anchorage from noon to 3 p.m.
Finally, there is the Fairbanks picnic from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday at Pioneer Park (formerly Alaskaland.) That will be Palin's last event as Alaska's governor.
After the picnic, Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell will be sworn in as her replacement.
