NORWEGIAN CONSTITUTION DAY
Join us for the biggest 17th of May celebration outside of Norway!
Welcome to Seattle’s popular 17th of May celebration, a.k.a. Syttende Mai [Soot-n-duh My]. Last year’s parade brought over 20,000 spectators to the streets of Ballard to see more than 100 groups, including marching bands, Norwegian-American lodges, drill teams, classic cars and much more — all for Norway’s Constitution Day.
We’re the 17th of May Committee, a 501(c) nonprofit, and we’d like you to join us for the 2013 festivities, an annual Nordic party in Seattle since 1889.
Men and women, teenagers and families. They all come together in a daylong festival of music and dance, kids activities, a luncheon featuring a Norwegian dignitary, and the parade, of course, that starts down a mile-long stretch of Ballard at 6 p.m.
We plan on making this year’s Syttende Mai better than ever while also raising funds for local charities and nonprofits.
So come join the family fun. We’d love to hear you say:
“Ya sure, you betcha!”
