When “The Bear Rolls Over” each January, everyone in Hancock becomes Finnish….in contrast to the normal, non-festival days when only 95% are.

Join in with the fun and participate the parade with Keweenaw Nordic! Mark your calendar for Saturday, January 26th. Line up at the Scott Hotel at 10:30, and at 11 we’ll march to the Finnish American Heritage Center for games, lunch, and the craft fair.

Here’s a link to the schedule of events for the whole fun-filled Festival!
