To all those who participated in the 2016 Norseman Festival

The Norseman Festival Committee would like to thank all those patrons that came out to support their local festival. We are thankful that the rain didn’t seem to deter our dedicated visitors. This year we were very excited to have a large number of community groups participating, their involvement has allowed the festival to grow by providing new and exciting activities. We are greatly looking forward to next year’s Festival and bigger and better things. The Norseman Festival was made possible by the volunteers and organizations listed below. Again our sincere thanks to all that helped make this year’s festival a great success
