NORWEGIAN DAY PARADE



Today marks the 385th anniversary of the Bay Ridge Norwegian Day Parade. The parade is exactly like the Bay Ridge St. Patrick's Day Parade, except kilts are exchanged for Viking hats, making it much more difficult to walk.

The parade steps off at 1:30 p.m. on Fifth Avenue at 89th Street and proceeds north along Fifth Avenue to 67th Street, turning right to pass the reviewing stand on the south side of Leif Ericson Park.

The Bay Ridge Food Co-Op will be marching. They'll be dressed in traditional Norwegian clothes made out of gravlaks and Kj√łttkaker.
