I took this picture whilst watching the local 17 May parade last year, in a small town in Norway called Moss. It captured the celebration of the day and how the whole day includes everyone. Along the parade route I saw many nationalities of children involved in the parade. This image has also been featured on http://yourshot.nationalgeographic.com/daily-dozen/2011-05-31/ – My first published photograph. 🙂
Today is the day when Norwegians celebrate the day in 1814 when they got their own constitution.

How could I not like this post? 😉 Great shot from the parade, and you look as happy as one should be on å day like this. 🙂
It was a great day and my 1st 17 Mai..celebrations!
Looks like it was an awesome parade, and lovely blue sky to go with it! 🙂
It was a wonderful day and such a privilege to experience a day like that. The music was pretty cool too. Local school children play in bands and march with the parade! 😀
Cool! Great photos – looks like a perfect day!
