The tradition of the Fyr Bal festival continues this Saturday in Ephraim. The 54th annual event will blend a few new features with the old Scandinavian customs. The huge bonfire Saturday night to symbolically burn the “winter witch” will be especially appreciated this year, according to Ephraim Business Council Tourism Administrator Lane Sauve. She highlights some of the Fyr Bal happenings.
The Fyr Bal will come to a climatic ending with fireworks after the 54th chieftain will be announced and the ceremonial bonfire is lit on the Ephraim beach. You can find the complete schedule for the Fyr Bal with the link below.
