Danish Day at Balboa Park Recap

June 7, 2010

We had a great response at the Danish Day in Balboa park. Lots of people don’t actually know that LEGO is a Danish company. Quite a few members of SANDlug were on hand to help out and many different styles of building were represented. Here’s what it looked like: 🙂

We all had a great time and the House of Denmark invited us to return next year. 😀

Danish Day at Balboa Park

June 6, 2010

If you actually live in the San Diego area I, along with my fellow SANDlug members, will be down in Balboa Park at the House of Denmark for their Grundlovsdagsfest(Danish Constitution Day).

Come and show your Danish red and white colors. People come and go as they need to. Danish food will be sold and a group of lego enthusiasts will show their talent. You may get a chance to play with lego yourself.

At 2 p.m. we will have entertainment on the stage. Performers include:

– Niels Lund will sing Danish and English songs including sing-along for children and adults.
-The Scandinavina Children Folkdancers and Balboa Park Dancers will dance folkdancing
-Anne Goldman will tell a Hans Christian Andersen fairytale.

We will sell Danish food from noon to 4 p.m. Danish sausage (medisterpoelse), meatballs (frikadeller), red cabbage (roedkaal), cucumber salad, and pastry (kringle) will be on sale from the cottage, so bring your appetite!

Please be aware that the Rock and Roll Marathon will take place on the same day as our Lawn Program. There will be roadclosures in the downtown area, including Southbound 163 Freeway. Therefore, your usual route to Balboa Park may not be possible. To help you plan your best route, here is a link that tells you about road closures including freeways and ramps. Road Closures

We will have a LEGO model display as well as some LEGO to play with. So if you are interested, come join us. 🙂
