The 41st annual Aura Jamboree was this past weekend. Many people came out to enjoy the music and dancing offered in the Aura Community Hall.

More than 100 musicians played in 15 minute rotations on the main stage over only two days. When they weren't playing, they could typically be found outside under a tent or tree for a jam session.

"The Aura Jamboree started out a basically a fold fiddling festival with a Finnish theme, and it's kind of morphed into what it is today," co-organizer Mike Roberts. "We have all types of music. Country, bluegrass, folk music, traditional Finnish music, many different styles of music you're going to find on the grounds."

All proceeds from the weekend go to support future jamborees, the community hall, and scholarships for Baraga and L'Anse High School students.
