Peterson recognized Gammel Dag–the Good Old Days–during the June 18 community celebration. In particular, the town’s Norwegian roots were highlighted with Nordic Dancers, Fjord horse, Hardanger Fiddler, Norwegian language lessons, and much more. The Friends of Peterson wish to thank the Peterson American Legion for supporting Gammel Dag Fest in many ways, the many volunteers that worked to make it a success, and everyone who came out to enjoy the weekend’s activities!
