Junction City, Oregon was settled by the fair of hair and skin, the Scandinavians.
For decades a lively festival has been held in honor of those rugged pioneers.
We attended again this weekend enjoying crafts, folk dancing, art, and...wait for it...FOOD.
I'll let my photos do the talking.
Ye Olde Windmill Information Center. Notice that we went to the festival on Norwegian Day, in honor of Tom's heritage.
Some people are so talented!
Joe mainly goes to the festival for the authentic food...
...as does Tom.
Abelskivers are little round pancakes.
A batch ready to serve.
Abelskivers are served three at a time with a bit of Norse jelly.
Bellies full the boys head for the car!
Another fun year celebrating the Norse Land!
