In August of 1896, George Carmack, Dawson Charlie and Skookum Jim discovered gold in what is now called Bonanza Creek. After this discovery, nearly 100,000 people attempted to reach the Klondike gold fields to find gold. Therefore, the discover day week is celebrated every year in the month of august to commemorate their great discovery.
