Syttende Mai 2020 / 17. Mai 2020

Norway's Constitution Day!

Constitution Day is the national day of Norway and is an official public holiday observed on May 17 each year. But it's much more than that!

Children’s parades, marching bands, traditional costumes, and ice cream.

A lot of ice cream. The celebration of the Norwegian Constitution Day is a party like no other. Unfortunately this year, with our stay-at-home orders, we need to improvise with a virtual celebration, so next Sunday, the 17th, anytime from 9am and on, The House of Norway will present some awesome videos, including "live" raising of the flag at Balboa Park, singing of the Anthem, and guest comments..
