This is a day to celebrate Norwegian Constitution Day, Syttende Mai, and also Leif Erikson Lodge’s 116th anniversary. The open house is from 12 Noon to 5PM at our hall. There are celebratory events commemorating this important day throughout Ballard—from entertainment at Bergen Place, to the parade through the heart of Ballard,

You will also be able to meet members of many Nordic organizations who you will also see in the parade. They will be sharing information about their group and how you can get involved.
Parking is always a challenge on this day especially near the parade route (the parade route down 24th Ave NW and part of Market will not have any parking later in the day. Any cars parked there may be towed as the parade time gets closer). However, on-street parking away from the main part of Ballard is generally free. Plan on walking or taking the bus or other transport. Public transportation helps reduce your stress levels in getting to Ballard on May 17!
Hurra! Hurra! Hurra for syttende mai!
Gratulerer med dagen!
