To mark the signing of the Norwegian Constitution at Eidsvoll on May 17, 1814, Norway celebrates the 17th of May (also known as Syttende Mai) with parades and festivities all over the world. While the biggest procession takes place in the city of Bergen, Seattle's most Nordic neighborhood, Ballard, also hosts a consistently large turnout of spectators as marching bands and drill teams galavant down the street waving Norwegian flags. This year, Anniken Ramberg Krutnes, Norway's first woman ambassador to the US, will be the grand marshal of the parade. Before the parade, the Nordic Museum, Bergen Place Park, and the Leif Erikson Lodge will also be open for special Nordic activities.
