Vikings toss kegs and pans because the pageant returns to Whitestown – WISH-TV | Indianapolis Information | Indiana climate
WHITESTOWN, Ind. (WISH) – Whitestown is where people gather for the fourth annual Viking Festival in Anson Park.
Whitestown Parks and Recreation organizers said the three-day festival had Viking-themed reenactors, Viking villages, artisans, and themed food.
You can take part in archery and ax throwing, according to a press release posted on News 8. There will also be a barrel throwing competition and an iron pan throwing competition.
“The Vikings sell their wares and handcrafted items throughout the festival – crowd favorites include decorated / engraved drinking horns, silver jewelry, leather goods, soaps, swords and more,” said Savannah Solgere, director of Whitestown Parks. “There is something for everyone at Viking Fest.”
The festival is open to the public until Saturday at 10 p.m. and on Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., according to the organizers. Entry is $ 5 and tickets are available online or at the gate.
Last year’s Viking Festival was originally postponed from April to August, but ultimately those dates were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
