“I am happy to report that we raised more money this year than in previous years,” Rutuelo said. “Spectators from all around the Tri-State area and around the USA and Norway return to Bay Ridge to celebrate Norwegian Constitution Day. We are glad to help our local businesses and restaurants to flourish.”
