This photo is from a Oslo school where a lot of people gathered after the big children's parade downtown. It's common that people return to the schools of their children. There are cakes and ice cream for sale, and lots of fun games to play for the kids. You meet the parents of your children's classmates and just enjoy seeing all those people dressed up nicely. We stayed there for a couple of hours before we went to on to visit some family.
I didn't get a chance to take pictures of the children's parade, but if you visit this photo series you'll get a nice look at how May 17th were celebrated yesterday. The first photos are from Oslo, but there are also photos from other parts of the country.
Here are a few more memories from our visit at the school yesterday:
I even found a guy in a Scottish kilt. So cool! His young son, however, is wearing the traditional Norwegian bunad.
