As the Minnesota Vikings prepare to take the field at the brand new U.S. Bank Stadium for the 2016 season, the original Gjallarhorn is making its rounds through the North.
On Tuesday, September 13 the Sound The North Tour is stopping at Great Lakes Aquarium in Duluth. From 2 to 5 p.m. Vikings fans will be able to visit the horn, take photos with it and get in the spirit of the season.
It’s free to visitors and fans. Only those who plan to also tour the Aquarium will need to pay admission.
The “Sound the North” tour kicked off on Aug. 6 at training camp and will make its final stop in Bemidji, Minnesota, on Sept. 15, just prior to the Vikings regular-season home opener against Green Bay on Sept. 18.
Monterae Carter, a Vikings marketing intern, is accompanying the Gjallarhorn on its journey that includes statewide stops in Duluth, Minneapolis and Red Wing as well as two stops in South Dakota.
“Fans have received us with such excitement at each tour stop,” Carter said. “We have fun props for fans to use in their photos in front of the Gjallarhorn, and they get the entire family involved.”
Fans are encouraged to take photos and tag them on social media using #SoundTheNorth.
