NEGAUNEE - The snow may be falling, temperatures may be less than balmy, but what better weather is there for a festival celebrating winter?

Negaunee's annual Heikki Lunta festival, named for the Finnish "snow god" who dances to make the snow fall, is set for this weekend with a full slate of events.

The festival is coordinated by the Negaunee Irontown Association, which also hosts Pioneer Days in the summer. The weekend showcases many events that let participants have fun in the outdoors.

"It looks good," said Barb Oglesby, secretary of the Irontown Association. "We should have a lot of fishermen."
