CHARLOTTE, Michigan, returned to the Charlotte Nordic Fire Festival this weekend.
The festival brings archery, mead and all things medieval in mid-Michigan.
“This is my first year here, other people from our group have come, but today I really like it,” said Leanne Purcell. Purcell came to the Nordic Fire Festival at the Ethan County Fairgrounds to showcase his spinning and weaving. Her work using old methods is something you could see in the Viking Age.
“On this I weave wool on fat, straight from sheep,” she said. “So it’s a really good camping pillow because it’s waterproof, the wool insulates it, and it’s very warm and comfortable.”
The festival, which was suspended for a year due to the pandemic, features ax throwing, spears, archery, music and lots of food.
But twins Anna and Elizabeth Kuply say much of the fun is made up of outfits.
“I really like jewelry like this product because it’s different. And, of course, hats. Yes, hats are real and they will keep you warm! ” They said.
The Nordic Fire Festival is not over yet. Will run until Feb. 27 at 4 p.m.
