17th of May – Norways National Day

Today, May 17th, is Norways National Day. The Day of constitution. We celebrate it with parades and band music.

Risør was blessed with blue sky and warm weather. The day started with a parade at 7.00 AM with a comemorative speech at the memorial column of the fallen soldiers in the Second World War. Later on the day, it was time for the parade with the children.

We spend the day with family and friends, eating good food and having a great time.
