Nordic Dancers selling flowers for Syttende Mai
Wednesday, May 15, 2013 2:26 AM
There is something new coming to Syttende Mai this weekend.
The Nordic Dancers will host a "Blomster Salg" (Norwegian for flower sale), Saturday, May 18, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Vesterheim courtyard.
"There are a few certain signs of spring each year that we can count on. Syttende Mai, the Norwegian Independence celebration held every year in Decorah, is most certainly one of those spring traditions, and now a Blomster Salg," said Nordic Dancer parent Kirstin Heine.
"Decorah's Nordic Dancers invite you to come and enjoy all of the festivities at Vesterheim, including the street dance Friday night and the parade and dance performance Saturday morning.
"Stop by their flower stand to bring some "spring" to your step and back to your home. The beautiful flowers are locally grown by one of the dancer's families and have been donated so that your purchase is a 100-percent donation to help support the Nordic Dancers. Come and enjoy these delightful signs of spring," concluded Heine.
