Many communities in the United States, Canada, and other parts of the world hold festivals and parades in honor of Saint Urho’s Day. Some of the better known are in Finland, MN; Finlayson, MN; Menagha, MN; Thunder Bay, ON; Butte, MT; Hood River, OR. There is another web site that catalogs St. Urho’s Day activities each year, StUrhosDay.com, so we have decided to let them handle the annual list.

evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right,
it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
