Description

We'll gather rain or shine for the 60th Annual Syttende Mai Parade that has proven to be a fun and growing tradition for members of the New York-area alumni and parent club. As a large Ole group, we act as a unit in the parade, enjoying the spring day and conversations along the route.

We will meet at 84th Street and 5th Avenue in Bay Bridge, Brooklyn. The parade proceeds north along Fifth Avenue to 67th Street, ending at Leif Ericson Park. We’ll join together afterward for food and beverages at a nearby TBD restaurant, where you will just pay on your own.

This event is free, but please RSVP for our records. To register (by Thursday, May 16, 2013) , contact Sheri Eichhorn in the Alumni Office at 888-865-6537 or eichhorn@stolaf.edu. With questions, contact local alumni board representative Ben Baker ’09 at bensbaker@gmail.com.

Please arrive by 1 p.m., and the parade begins at 1:30 p.m. Look for the black and gold! Meet the St. Olaf Group at 84th Street and 5th Avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.

This event is quite large, so allow extra time for parking in Brooklyn. If coming by subway: The R Train (local) to 86th Street Station, Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.

Wear your black and gold!
