Nordic holiday spirit at Yulefest 2008

The Nordic Heritage Museum’s annual Christmas festival, Yulefest 2008, was in full swing when we stopped by on Saturday evening.

The event features over a dozen music and dance groups in three locations.

In the auditorium, the Katrilli Finnish Folkdancers dazzled the crowd.

Every nook and cranny of the museum features Nordic arts and crafts.

Many of them for the holidays. There are plenty of great gift ideas and beautiful, traditional Scandinavian decorations.

Of course, there’s plenty of authentic Scandinavian food, too.

And Yulefest wouldn’t be complete without Santa! If you didn’t get a chance to come out today, Yulefest runs Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $2 for adults and children 13 and up, $1 for children ages 6-12. Limited parking is available for a suggested donation of $2.
