17 may, we celebrate Norway’s Constitution day.

It’s a day for celebration, parades and ice cream 🙂

People wear colourful Bunads Norway’s national costumes.

The parades starts early in the morning. In Oslo, Norway’s capital, the parades go by the castle and are being greeted by the royal family.

The kids starts with the children parade early in the morning.

The high school graduates do their own parade.

The Folk parade, is a parade that includes just about everyone. It’s typical, all sorts of clubs, sports, police, fire service, marching bands, veterans, theatre and we could go on…

All in all it’s a fun filled day, with family and friends.
