Saturday, Nov. 16, 10:30 a.m., Masonic Center, no cover
The Vikings invented a lot of things: the battle axe, the shield, the comb. This day-long festival is more family-friendly than the History Channel television series. Enjoy Norwegian baked goods and food, including open-face sandwiches, fish soup, waffles and “Viking-on-a-stick.” Traditional Norwegian merch is also for sale. 5944 San Juan Ave., Citrus Heights.
