That "One Guy" to entertain at Vivian's Syttende Mai

Posted by Lucy

The community of Vivian will host their annual Syttende Mai celebration Monday, May 18 in Vivian, SD.

An authentic Norwegian celebration is planned that will include a parade, a Norwegian dinner, and entertainment by comedian and musician Gordy Pratt.

The parade will start at 5:45 pm from the Vivian Lutheran Church and proceed down Main Street. Refreshments and hors d’oeuvres will be served in the Vivian Hall immediately after the parade, followed by the authentic dinner at 6:30 pm. The menu includes Lutefisk, (with lots of butter) Swedish meatballs, and sauce, lefse, mashed potatoes, steamed cabbage, creamed peas, and fruit soup. And, for dessert try fattigman, kransekake, rosettes or krumkake.

Entertainment will be provided by Gordy Pratt from Spearfish, the original, fabulous ‘One Guy.’ Called the Victor Borge of the guitar, Gordy entertains and engages audiences with a unique concert that blends world-class guitar playing, original songs, popular favorites and hysterical baby-boomer humor all from ‘One Guy’.

"This event sells out every year, so make your reservations early," said Uffda Crew member Vern Larson. Contact Larson for ticket information.

" With limited space, people are encouraged to call for tickets early," added Larson.

The last day for ticket sales is Sunday, May 10th.
