LINDSEY WASSON / THE SEATTLE TIMES
Wielding a 10th century Viking sword replica and wearing 45-pound chainmail, 7-year-old Henry Durand of Hood River, Ore. yells a battle cry as he's encouraged by volunteer Eugene Ulrich, of Longship Trade Goods, during the 31st Annual Viking Days weekend at the Nordic Heritage Museum in Ballard on Saturday, Aug. 16, 2014. The festival offers live music, food and craft vendors, and a Viking Encampment with weapons, weaving, bread making, games and fight demonstrations. Viking Days continues on Sunday. .
