The Annual Children’s Parade
May 17 @ 1:15 pm–2:15 pm
The Annual Children’s Parade down Main Street from Spring Grove School to Viking Memorial Park.
The Norwegian name for this is Barnetoget.
Kindergarten children ride in the Viking Ship made by Ivan Dahle. Grades 1-6 will follow singing and waving Norwegian flags and singing. One of the classes will be sporting a hand-made, paper-maché giant mask. Once they arrive at the park, they will weave a Maypole made by Dr. Gray, and play games like Kubb, rope pulling, and sack races, etc. before enjoying treats such as Varme Pølse (hot dogs in lefse) and Spring Grove soda served from the Syttende Mai Hus by Sons of Norway before returning to school.
