There will be local events before and after the ceremony. A full schedule will be available ahead of the event.
The road to the Monument is a Forest Road generally passable by passenger vehicles but is rough. Travel time in good conditions is approximately 30 minutes from Bly. Drivers should prepare accordingly. Carpooling is strongly encouraged.
