From ages two to 86, over 120 dancers will celebrate their heritage this weekend at the Washington Island Scandinavian Dance Festival. Dancers have been working on their routines for about month with some participating in the event for the first time while others have made it an annual part of their summer. With 75 years of history behind it, multiple generations of families participate in the Washington Island Scandinavian Dance Festival annually. Organizer Kari Gordon says it is the community that makes it special.
The festival performance will be on August 3rd at 7:30 p.m. at the Foss Outdoor Stage.
