Syttende Mai at Leif Erikson Lodge
For the second year in a row there will be no Syttende Mai parade in Ballard due to the ongoing pandemic.
We will still be celebrating at Leif Erikson Lodge and Ballard, however. The Lodge welcomes everyone to celebrate Syttende Mai with a drive/walk-through dessert and coffee from 4:00–6:00 pm on Monday, May 17th. Blødtkake and krumkake are on the menu. Enjoy your treats as you listen to your favorite Scandinavian folk tunes by the Sølje Sisters. Join in the Parade Walk starting at Scandinavian Specialties (6719 15th Ave. NW) where you can enjoy pølse and Solo. Between 5:00–5:30 walk on down to the Lodge for dessert. Bunads and flag waving highly encouraged!
Continue your trek to Bergen Place for more flag waving and then to Skål (5429 Ballard Ave. NW) for refreshments and dedication of Bjarne’s booth!
