Syttende Mai aka Norwegian Constitution Day

Posted in assignment work, editorial work, news, Washington by bermanphotos on May 18, 2009

I covered Syttende Mai, or Norwegian Constitution Day for SeattlePI.com.
Check out more of my photos from this event.

This was an impressive event, and even on one of the hottest days of the year, several thousand Seattleites lined the streets of Ballard to watch the parade march by. This was a fun event to cover and the costumes made it easier.
