Green and purple will once again dominate the landscape in Finland this weekend as St. Urho's Day makes its return with usual array of events — and this year, a musical theme of "Urho-palooza."

The John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon is making another move for 2017.

Race organizers said they hope the location change will provide spectators a better, more accessible way to watch mushers start the race.
