Don't get the wrong idea. Though there is a "Viking Village" at the 6th Annual ScanFest of the Carolinas, it's not filled with ruthless brutes. Instead, the fest gives folks the opportunity to check out cultural displays on Scandinavian countries (that's Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Finland), traditional Scandinavian dancing performances, and more. Authentic Scandinavian cuisine and pastries, as well as other foods and a variety of arts and crafts will also be for sale. $5 per family or $2 per individual. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Wachovia Atrium, 301 S.
