Norwegian Constitution Day

Or 17.mai as we call it here is Norway’s biggest event. On the same day in 1814, the Constitution was signed in Eidsvoll and this year marks the 200th year of having its very own constitution. Every year, 17.mai is celebrated by long parades and numerous festivities. People wear their national costumes and wave the Norwegian flags with pride.

I celebrated this big event in Stavanger. I started the big day with a 17.mai frokost (breakfast) at a hotel with my lovely friends. Then, we watched the parade. After the parade I went to Stavanger Konserthus to watch the program there.

So, here you go. Behold the shots I took yesterday. Hipp Hipp Hurra Norge!
