If you happen to be around on a 17th of May, the celebration of the National day is quite a spectacular event.
The childrens' procession in the morning
with national costumes, little Norwegian flags, toy flutes, brass bands, happy smiling faces and lots of ice cream is a beautiful experience. Everyone is outside watching along the street.
Later in the afternoon there will be another procession for grown-ups with all kinds of organizations (sport clubs, choirs...) represented, lots of show and fun and the red-dressed high-school graduates (russ) putting even more colour to the day.
