Nordic Heritage Museum to host annual Pippi Longstocking celebration this weekend


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

The museum will host a Swedish pancake breakfast and activities in Pippi’s honor from 10 a.m. – 1: 30 p.m. this Saturday, March 12.

“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 and live music.

At noon families are invited to stay for a viewing of the movie Pippi Goes on Board (dubbed in English) starring Inger Nilsson.

The cost for breakfast is $9 for adult non-members, $7 for adult members and $5 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.
