Scandinavian Fest

Today I attended the 32nd annual Scandinavian Fest at Vasa Park in Budd Lake, Morris County, New Jersey. The festival promotes and celebrates the histories and cultures of the six Nordic countries: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.

There was a Viking longship on display.

There were performances, talks, a marketplace with food and crafts, ax throwing, and a wife carrying contest (the winner won the wife's weight in beer). It was a great day!
