Rutland Parade


There is still time to join the Rutland parade!

PARADE INFO: The 37th Annual Uff-Da Day Fall Festival is coming up in Rutland on Sunday, October 2, 2022. 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 37 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, rain or shine, 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 & Ann Erickson and their assistants will be on hand to help you find your place in the 2022 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 2022 information, stop by Rutland’s internet web site at www.rutlandnd.com; check out the Rutland blog; take a look at the Uff-Da Day and Rutland Facebook pages; and, look for THE ROOSTER CROWS and other Uff-Da Day articles 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 2, 2022, for an interesting and fun-filled day. Feel free to share this invitation with others.
Bill Anderson, Lyle Erickson & Ann Erickson
