DECORAH, Iowa (KTTC) -- May the Norsk be with you! That's the theme this year for the annual Nordic Fest in Decorah, Iowa

Since 1967, nearly two million visitors from around the world have attended the festival.

This year, crowds are enjoying authentic Norwegian food, traditional crafts and music, lively entertainment, and a grand parade Saturday morning. The festival concludes with a fireworks show at 10 o'clock, Saturday night.

One of the highlights each year of Nordic Fest is the Nordic Dancers. Every year, the junior and senior dancers perform in front of crowds throughout the festival. Organizers say it helps people remember the traditional folk dances of Norway.

The Nordic Dancers have been listed as a top attraction in Decorah. They're planning a tour to Norway in 2016.
