Scandinavian Tour 2009: Day 8

Happy Constitution Day! May 17th is a national Norwegian holiday. It is the day Norway signed it's "Declaration of Independence" from Sweden. This morning Arnt Ove took us into Haugesund to watch a parade. On May 17th, Norwegian men, women and children dress in ornate and hand-crafted traditional costumes. This morning's parade featured many of the children of the city who marched with their school mates and teachers waving flags.
