Support for the historic Viking ship continues in Duluth. Members of the community came together on Tuesday, December 11 for the Yultide Winter Solstice. The event was held to raise money to help the restoration project of the Leif Erikson replica Viking ship.

The ship is being stored in Leif Erikson park. Supporters hope to restore the ship and find permanent housing.

It has been more than 85 years since the original ship sailed into Duluth.
