The 9th annual Uff Da! Days celebration was filled with Scandinavian food, fun and, of course, humor over the weekend. Above, Lena and Inga get some advice from Olga during the "Continuing Saga of Ole and Lena," which is performed each year. During this chapter, Ole and Sven are supposed to finish building the house but run into trouble with the building inspector. Uff Da! Days organizer Jim Frank said all in all the event went well. More than 100 lutefisk meals were served and there was no leftover lutefisk, he said. Organizers are already gearing up for next year's event, the 10th annual, which will be on Labor Day weekend.
