Telge Glima $7,500 to Norsk Høstfest Association
Grant awarded to Norsk Høstfest Association to assist in the promotion of the Viking Village during Høstfest. Telge Glima is a Swedish group that demonstrates Viking and Midevil era games and combat. The group performed a month prior to Høstfest at the Scandinavian Heritage Park and at various schools and businesses throughout the community. The reception to the gentlemen from Sweden was outstanding and their interaction with young people was a great demonstration of HHF values.
The HHF issued the grant because Viking Village is a principle part of Høstfest demonstrating another aspect of our Scandinavian heritage and attracting a new audience to Hostfest and the Scandinavian Heritage Park.
