The Viking statue is nearly finished and will be placed at the corner of Viking Avenue and Lindvig Way at the beginning of November.

It will be dedicated during the holiday tree- lighting ceremony, Nov. 23, 7 p.m. The statue, sculpted by Mark Gale, was commissioned by the city and paid for with donated funds.

Poulsbo booster Bill Austin coordinated the project.
