After a day of riding bike or taste testing beer, come back to the Ephraim Guest House Condo’s and walk to the Harbor for Ephraim’s 51st Annual Fyr Bal.  Fyr Bal is a re-creation of the traditions Norwegians celebrated for the mid-summer’s eve.  With artists, food, family fun activities, and music all located along the bay shore of Eagle Harbor, you can easily make a full day of the activities.  Watch the sun set in the evening and enjoy the annual lighting of the bonfires on the shore.  These bonfires represent the burning of the “winter witch” and allow the warm, long days of summer to descend.  Stay for the fireworks at dusk, then walk back to the Guest House and cozy up in your condo for a peaceful rest.

This is one of our favorite weekends at the beginning of summer and we hope you’ll join us in enjoying all that Door County has to offer.  Whether for the festivities or the pure beauty that is Door County, we can’t wait to see you.
