COMMUNITY COLUMN: Viking invasion in Thorsby

Published 10:44am Friday, October 12, 2012

The parade will begin at 9:30 a.m., and the festivities will begin in Richard Wood Park immediately following. Arts, crafts, exhibits, food and entertainment will continue until 2 p.m. The town’s History Museum will be open in its new location on the corner of Jones Street and Montgomery Avenue in the old bank building, and a car show ($20 entry fee) will be held in front of Thorsby School.

Bring the entire family for a day of fun, festivity and, yes, maybe even discover a little Viking kinship, too!
