Scandinavian Folk Festival

The Scandinavian Folk Festival occurred on Sunday, July 17th at the Gerry Rodeo Grounds, in Gerry, NY.  It was awesome to celebrate your Nordic Heritage with Danes, Finns, Swedes, Norwegians, and Estonians,  I’m not sure if there were Icelanders attending.

Lots of fun for the family, with Children’s Crafts, Adult Craft instructional lessons of Nordic Art and woodcarving, the Viking Ship Replica, The Dance Band from Sweden, Donnez, Toronto Swedish Folk Dancers, Jamestown’s local Swedish Group, Svenska Spelman and so many more things.

My Favorite shopping is at Mormor’s Attic (Grandma’s Attic) where one can find so many Scandinavian treasures!

And who knows the story about Nils, the Gooseboy?  Here’s a picture of what Nils probably looked like!!!  You can Google The Wonderful Adventures of Nils at (for Anime) or You Tube Nils Holgersson Episode 1 (created by French animation)
