JUNCTION CITY, Ore. -- If you were at the Scandinavian Festival this weekend, you know there are a lot of tasty treats to choose from.

There was a long line for Junction City Fire & Rescue's Aebleskivers. It's like a pancake puff with powdered sugar and jam.

Volunteer firefighters said they've been cooking them nonstop at the festival this weekend. They said making these pastries has become a tradition.

It's their biggest fundraiser of the year. They said the money raised goes to Junction City Fire & Rescue's Volunteer Association. They in turn use that money in different ways for the community.

The Scandinavian Festival runs through Sunday night.
