Nordic Heritage Museum to host annual Pippi Longstocking celebration this weekend

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.
