Nordic Fest in Decorah

DECORAH (KWWL) - People in Decorah are celebrating their Norwegian and Scandinavian hertiage this weekend.

Saturday morning, the streets were packed in Decorah for the 42nd annual Nordic Fest. The town celebrated with a two hour parade that had more than 100 entries along with costumes, dancing, and more.

"People just come to get together for a good time a lot of Luther students come back as well and families come home.  Its like a big community reunion," said Connie Strom.

"The exciting part is that all the family joins us and all other families in Decorah and we have a big church dinner that we serve this afternoon at First Lutheran with all the good Norweigan foods and especially desserts," said Sandy Hoeg.

Nordic Fest started Friday night and ends Saturday night with fireworks.
