Kikkan Randall and her fellow Olympians take the stage in Anchorage

People filled Town Square Park in downtown Anchorage to celebrate Alaska's Olympians on Wednesday evening. Cross-country skiers, a snowboarder and a figure skater took to the stage as the crowd cheered.

Kikkan Randall, five-time Olympian and gold medal winner at the Pyeongchang Olympics, was the star of the show. A crowd of people gathered around her to get autographs and a photo with the gold medalist. While on stage, Randall sprayed a pink streak in Mayor Ethan Berkowitz's hair to match her own.
