The Music City Vikings enjoyed a great day at the Tennessee State Fair on Sat.,
In addition to a colorful and very informational booth, MCV members participated in the Festival of Nations Parade! The drumming and the flags and people from all nations were enjoyed by all.
Wendy Winkleman (pictured in the beautiful bunad) drove all the way from Corben, Illinois to join in the fun, attending the Festival of Nations and marching in the Festival Parade.
Wendy and her husband Bill are members of Sons of Norway Shawnee Skogen 5-689 in Corben, IL. Wendy and Bill have attended a couple other MCV events, including Syttende mai at Two Rivers Park, and also a meeting at First Lutheran Church.
Several Scandinavian fair goers signed in at the booth and took membership forms. A family from Iceland who have been living in Nashville since July joined also in the Parade of Nations.
Tusen takk to the Trollkretsen Scandinavian Dancers from the Vikings of the Smokies Lodge 5-677, Knoxville, TN., and also to Meg Mabbs who helped make it all happen. The group performed on the stage and were wonderful to watch!
Tusen takk also to MCV members LeAnne Peters, Evelyn McDaniels, Carol Fidler, Sharon Lassiter and Sharol Hopwood who graciously endured the HOT weather and demonstrated they were true modern Viking women.
