  • Photo by Alastair Baker The Festival of Nations drew good crowds to it 2-day events at The Red Lodge Elk’s Club and Sam’s Tap Room. There was plenty for people to see and do amid the vibrant colors of the Scandinavian dancers, highland games, with Celtic tones from Christopher Layer, Celtic Fusion Dancers, and the fascination of the...
