Nice news of the day – September 27, 2018

Almost everything you need to now about Norsk Hostfest

It’s “Pure Scandimonium” this weekend as Norsk Hostfest 2018 polkas its way onto the North Dakota State Fairgrounds from September 26-29.  Now in its 41st year, thousands of people (including Michael Bolton!) will descend upon Minot to celebrate North America’s largest Scandinavian festival.  From the festival website:

Norsk Høstfest celebrates Scandinavian culture and heritage of the five Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.  Each nation is represented in one of the halls in which the festival takes place, and each named after their country’s capital city.  The individual styles of each country’s entertainment, food, clothes, art, and jewelry can be found throughout Norsk Høstfest and also in the Scandinavian Heritage Park, the only park in the world representing all five Nordic countries.

It’s best seen to be believed, but in the meantime, here is a sampling of the news surrounding Norsk Hostfest:
