Vikings, trolls, Pippi Longstocking and Beowulf aren't the only reasons to celebrate Scandinavian culture, but they sure are some things we've read about. This weekend folks can immerse themselves in Nordic culture as SAGA of the Carolina's presents its annual ScanFest, in its eighth year. The fest represents the countries of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Finland through cultural displays, traditional Scandinavian music and dancing, Lego building and a "Viking Village" with other activities. Let's not forget food, including authentic Scandinavian cuisine (yes, you can count on some Swedish meatballs and Lingonberry sauce) and tasty pastries for sale.
