We headed down to the Scandinavian Festival this past Saturday in Ephraim. Dad grew up going to this festival every year since it was in his home town. Despite the horrible weather, we had a lot of fun. They had a fun little parade where we got way too much candy and then a whole street full of booths to look at or eat from. We were sad the wind was blowing so hard because they also had some fun pioneer activities and wagon rides, but our boys were done at that point. We think it is fun to attend city activities. You can usually find a few free activities going on and there is usually a parade. You can stock up on Halloween candy! Here are the upcoming town events for the northern part of Utah County.
