The famous Horn Dance is performed by twelve dancers, six carrying reindeer antlers, accompanied by the hobby horse, a jester, maid Marian, a boy carrying a bow and arrow, a musician playing an accordion and a boy playing the triangle keeping the beat of the music for the dancers. The dancers follow a 10 mile course and perform the ritual in 12 different locations in and around the village.
