During the pageant for the 2007 Little Norway Festival in Petersburg, Alaska, Alaska’s Governor – Sarah Palin addressed the crowd. She was welcomed with a rowdy greeting from the Vikings and donned some fur on loan from Caryn Flint. Petersburg was founded by Norwegians and every year the town celebrates the Norse heritage with festivities in mid-May. Some people dress in outfits and pillage the town during the festival – those in the background.
