If you haven't been to Islendingadagurinn, then you'll have to make this a priority for next summer, for sure! Of course I'm talking about the Icelandic Festival of Manitoba, which has been a rocking good time for more than a hundred years! Originally held in Winnipeg, the festival moved to Gimli in 1932 and it's no surprise why it's been held there ever since near the beautiful shores of Lake Winnipeg and at venues in town. While I had a chance to participate in the parade, I learned just how much there is to take in during the four-day event, from Viking combat demonstrations, to the cultural exhibits, a sandcastle building contest, art show and live music (and so much more!). For the past 95 years, a Fjallkona, or Maid of the Mountain, has been crowned, but still no Moose of the Mountain…I put a suggestion in the box!
