The White House said Tuesday that President Obama is expected to land in Dillingham at about 12 p.m. Wednesday. He'll travel from the airport to Kanakanak Beach to meet with fishermen and families for roughly an hour. The President will then attend a "cultural performance" at the Dillingham Middle/High School, spending about an hour there before traveling back to the airport to depart for Kotzebue.

The White House said the event at Kanakanak Beach will be closed to the public, and invited guests only will be allowed to attend the performance at the school.

Mr. Obama had breakfast at Snow City Cafe in Anchorage Tuesday morning. This photo was taken by Apayo Moore of Aleknagik.
