This video the 2014 Scandinavian Festival Opening.
The Scandinavian Festival commences with a processional parade to the Festival Park Stage. Scandinavian and Nordic culture, dancing and musical entertainment reigns throughout the festival. Community members rehearse all summer long, and it all comes together in traditional dances performed in full costume.
The smorgasbord of food is also a festival highlight with traditional favorites from Swedish meat pies to Ebelskivers (Danish pancakes). Of course, you can find all the common street fair choices like shave ice and corn on the cob, but while at the Scandinavian Festival, do what the Vikings do and eat Scandinavian.
Speaking of Vikings, you’ll see them moving through the crowds, and if you are lucky, you may even spot a troll or two.
