Saint Urho’s Day Celebrations

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,, so we have decided to let them handle the annual list.
