It's the First Ever Norway Day in Moose Jaw

The inaugural Norway Day took over the Notorious City on Friday, and nearly 100 people made an appearance at the Tourism Center.

The Moose Jaw Rotary Club cooked breakfast and Peacock Collegiate's vocal jazz choir, led by Cameron Church, sang the Norweigan National anthem as well as "Take on me" by Norweigan singer "A-Ha" at the event. The Vanier Vikings mascot was also present along with many Moose Javians donning both Canadian and Norwegian attire.

Mayor Fraser Tolmie detailed why Norway Day is important.

"We want to celebrate their 205th year of them signing their constitution. We have got a great relationship with the Norwegian people."

Jacki L'Heureux-Mason, Executive Director of Tourism Moose Jaw, detailed her thoughts on the day.

"This is a real culmination of the friendship that we've developed with Norway, so I think the idea of celebrating Norway on their birthday is just our way of saying thank you for the friendship and thank you for this amazing experience we got to share this year."

Linda Otnes-Henriksen also sent well wishes via Youtube at the gathering. 

Golden West Radio is also sending a lucky someone on a trip come October for 8 days to celebrate Canada day in Norway. Many people have already entered their names, but more opportunities will be available.

The day of the draw is scheduled for June 14th.
