Oberg Family Reunion 2009
Scandinavian Folk Festival!
We had a great time at the Scandinavian Folk Festival. There were several Scandinavian arts & crafts displays, all kinds of Scandinavian food, classes on the Swedish language and culture. There was also a large auditorium/eating area under a circus tent with a polka band. We enjoyed our "Korv Burgers" while listening to traditional Swedish folk music. The accordians were rockin'!
Cousins were there in full force with their Å baseball caps.

Many commented that the festival was a good reunion event and all enjoyed it. We were lucky that we were able to coordinate the reunion dates with the festival weekend.
About 2:00 PM several cousins made a two hour driving tour of the historic family home sites and paid our respects to the family ancestors buried in the local cemeteries.
