Attending Scandinavian Festival

Viking encampment, April 17, 2010
Three years ago today we went to the Scandinavian Festival in Thousand Oaks, Calif. The annual celebration of all things Norwegian, Sweedish, Danish and Finnish was held at California Lutheran University. As you may recall, some of your ancestors came from Norway.

At the festival, we looked at Scandinavian cars, dogs and food. We also went through the Viking encampment, where you got to hold a big Viking sword (see the picture at above left). We also got you a cool Viking helmet as well as a Norwegian flag! A couple of years later, we would go to a different Viking festival near San Diego.

Here's a whole bunch of pics from our trip!
