The annual Kalevala Puppet Pageant was held over the weekend at the corn feed on Friday night and the Finn Creek Festival on Saturday. The show was called “The Wise Little Bird” and featured a Finnish folk story. The story emphasized the value of cooperation and listening, as the birds were captured by the trolls who were trying to eat them. 

Finn Creek was abuzz with activity on Saturday and Sunday as the old school, church and former city hall were open to the public. The event also included the saw mill and tractor, which ran throughout the weekend.
