Syttende Mai 2012

The weather was perfect the entire weekend for Spring Grove's Syttende Mai celebration. A large crowd was on hand for the three-day community festival, including the Grand Parade Saturday afternoon. In the photo above, the Spring Grove High School Band marched down the street. For more photos of the big weekend, see page 12. Photo by Charlie Warner
