Last July we held a small fire festival in Ross, with the burning of a Viking ship.
We are preparing to do this again next year, and if there is interest, there can be a Viking fair on the Saturday, and a Norse forum with an academic or Viking historian on the Sunday.
Folk who would like a mid-winter adventure in Ross, can come to the Midgard Fire Festival and help set the night a’blaze.
We will be holding a parade on our land on the hill above Ross, to the site where we will set the Viking ship on fire.
The parade can include lanterns, and at the site there will be fire drawings and fire sculptures.
When the coals settle beneath the stars, we will return to town for a merry night.
We hope this will become one of Tasmania’s hot winter festivals, every year.
We would be pleased to hear from any and all who would like to join us.
