NEWS CAPITAL CITY WEEKLY Two years ago, my boyfriend and a bunch of friends went to Little Norway Festival in Petersburg - without me. The stories that emerged were the stuff of legend, full of Vikings. Valkyries, plate upon plate of shrimp, and lots of activities involving the word "skol." There was no way I was missing it this year.

Petersburg awakens for Little Norway festival celebrating bicentennial

Vikings and Valkyries ride in the Viking ship during Petersburg, Alaska's annual Little Norway Festival, which celebrates the Norwegian holiday of syttende mai (17 May) created to observe the signing of the Constitution of Norway in 1814. Petersburg has a large Norwegian population and has celebrated Syttende Mai since 1958.
