Preview: Friday’s Little Norway Festival schedule

Secon construction is taking a break from the downtown road work to make way for this year’s Little Norway Festival in Petersburg. So, on Friday, May 17th, Main Street will be lined with concession booths and activities and children will dance and parade through the streets along with the Vikings and Valkyries in their armor and animal skins. Residents will sport Norwegian sweaters and show off their traditional costumes called bunader along with more music and art as the 55th annual Festival goes into high gear. That’s all coming up Friday. Matt Lichtenstein spoke with the festival committee’s Holli Flint and Katie Eddy about Friday’s schedule.
