NEGAUNEE — The Upper Peninsula is known for some pretty special events that celebrate the community in many ways, but one specific event helped celebrate the culture of another country.
The Negaunee Township Hall hosted the 10th annual Finn Fun Day on Saturday, August 24th. Tons of people filled up the Township Hall in order to get their look at live performances, and merchandise that represent the country of Finland.
“We try to vary the entertainment every year. We try to have education things so this brings the people, the ones who have any connection with Finland or the Finland heritage they all try to show up at the annual visit between a lot of the people,” said Ronald Hall, Facilitator of Finn Fun Day, and member of the Finlandia Foundation National Lake Superior Chapter. “So it’s a combination of being entertained and a lot of fellowship among one another.”
While the event is only once a year, community members who attend say its always fun time and can’t wait for the next one to come around.
