Uffda Day Parade Seeks Entries


The 34th Annual Uffda Day Fall Festival is coming up in Rutland on Sunday, October 7, 2018.  Again this year, in addition to the other Uffda Day events and activities, we are going to have a parade.  You are invited to join with us to help make this year’s Uff-Da Day Parade one of the best in the event’s 34-year history.

As you know, Uffda Day is a celebration which emphasizes the Scandinavian and pioneer heritage of the Rutland Community.  You and any organizations you belong to are invited to participate in this year’s Uffda Day Parade.  We encourage you to join us in a celebration of the heritage of ethnic diversity that has so enriched our communities.

We ask, but don’t require, that you notify us in advance if you plan to have a unit in the parade, so we have a chance to keep things somewhat (but not excessively) organized.  The parade will form up on the East side of town, on Dakota Street, and will start, promptly, at 1:00 p.m., so plan to have your unit in place by 12:30 p.m., or a little earlier, if possible.  Lyle Erickson, Richard Lysne and their assistants will be on hand to help you find your place in the 2018 Uff-Da Day Parade.  Please fill out the registration form on this letter and return it to Parade Committee, PO Box 100, Rutland ND 58067, or call 701-724-3467.  For additional Uff-Da Day 2018 information, check out Rutland’s internet website at www.rutlandnd.com; take a look at the Uff-Da Day and Rutland Facebook pages; and, look for The Rutland Leader insert in The Sargent County Teller. Whether you are here as a participant or an observer, we hope that you, your family and friends, are able to join us, on Sunday, October 7, 2018, for an interesting and fun-filled day.  Feel free to share this invitation with others.
