COON VALLEY, Wis. -

The rain held off for a celebration of Norwegian heritage in Coon Valley.

Norskedalen hosted its Midsummer Fest this weekend.

The celebration gives families the opportunity to experience what life was like for the Norwegian immigrants who settled in Coon Valley.

People could learn how to make rope, watch a blacksmith in action and pet some farm animals.

The organizer of the event, Tim Larson, said it's all about taking people on a journey back in time.

"People can learn pioneer crafts like broom making, butter churning, all the traditional crafts that were around in the late 1800s," said Larson.

This the 30th annual Midsummer Fest.

The entrance fee is $6 for adults and $3 for kids and $15 for families.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
