Visit a Viking encampment and Sami village; check out a collection of Scandinavian vintage cars and motorcycles and ask the rune reader for advice. Especially for kids, there will be a children’s theater, performances by community children’s groups and a puppet show of the Hans Christian Andersen stories. Everyone is Scandinavian at Kingsmen Park this weekend!
