GREEN BAY, Wis. (NBC 26) — If you were at UW-Green Bay on Friday, you may have seen some Vikings on campus.
More than sixty people from around the region and the world showed their blacksmithing, woodworking, and bead-making skills to community members at the Midwest's largest Viking Festival.
Festival coordinator Tim Jorgensen says the festival allows people to discover the wide range of Viking life.
"We are really making sure people are aware of the crafts, the hands crafts, the arts, the creative side of the Viking Age Scandanavians," Jorgensen said.
The festival continues Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. near Wood Hall on campus.
It is free to the public.
