Little Norway Festival activities began Wednesday in Petersburg but the festival really picks up speed today with events running morning to night.

Janet Holten, Chair of the Little Norway Festival Committee, talked to Angela Denning about Thursday’s schedule:

Doors open at 7:15 p.m. for the Mitkof Mummer’s performance. Again, that’s at the Wright Auditorium.

The Little Norway Festival runs through Sunday. We will be airing more details of the festival schedule in future newscasts.
