The tiny town of Snellman, west of Osage on Highway 34, was booming Saturday for the annual festival.

The town has no official population but a few dedicated people continue to sponsor Snellman Days, a tradition spanning six years.


Doc and Joanie Anderson, owners of the Snellman Store, and Aune Longfors, owner of Aune's Kauppala, also in Snellman, organized the event. "Kauppala" means "store" in Finnish.
