Midsommar 2011 Photos

The sixth annual Midsommar in Way Park was another smashing success! Thanks to the Sons of Norway, the Northfield Swedish Club, and all the volunteers who made it happen, to the young fiddlers and dancers from the Evergreen School of Performing Arts and the young-at-heart local musicians who made this year's event so special, and to Mark Heiman and Doug Bratland for sharing their photos from the celebration.
