Nordic Heritage Museum to host annual Pippi Longstocking celebration this weekend

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on March 28th, 2014

pippiIt’s that time of year again when the Nordic Heritage Museum (3014 NW 67th St) celebrates one of Swedens most well known characters, Pippi Longstocking.

This Saturday, March 29, the museum will host a Swedish pancake breakfast and activites in Pippi’s honor from 10 a.m.

“Whimsical and independent, Pippi Longstocking has been a favorite literary character for both kids and adults since the 1940s,” write event organizers.

Kids and adults are encouraged to dress up as their favorite character from the Pippi stories and enjoy the delicious pancake breakfast. The event is also set to feature crafts for all and live music.

At noon families are invited to stay for a viewing of the movie Pippi on the Run (dubbed in English) starring Inger Nilsson. This all-ages classic was released in the United States in 1977 and features the adventures of Pippi, Tommy, and Annika as they run away from home.

The cost for breakfast is $6 for adults and $4 for children ages 5 – 12; the movie is a suggested donation of $5 for adults and $3 for kids. No reservations are needed, and Museum admission is included.

    I think what you typed made a ton of sense. But, what about this?
    what if you composed a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website,
    but what if you added a title that makes people want more?

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
