The Vikings are coming!

Please click to enlarge and print.
Every year, the Abbotsford Optimist Club hosts Family Fun Days, a free activity for all ages that includes food, refreshments and entertainment. This year, the club is pleased to announce that the Vikings are returning to "Abbot's Fjord" to reclaim the land they first set foot upon last year.

These fun-loving Norsemen will initiate a friendly raid at the Trethewey House, 2313 Ware Street, Abbotsford, June 11, 2011, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 pm. As part of the Reik Felag (travelling fellowship), they will demonstrate weapons and armour, weaving, music, food, naalbinding, metalworks and other arts and crafts and spin stories of their travels, Norse myths, and Viking tales.

Children and their parents will also enjoy treasure hunts, puzzle contests and a coloring contest.

To learn more about the Vikings, please visit www.reikfelag.org.
