Come out and participate in Ballard’s Syttende Mai parade tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. The Ballard Historical Society will walk next to two burgundy vintage cars this year. Look for the cars, the 1950s getups and the “Feeling Nostalgic?” signs. We have a lot of fun while doing our best to represent a simpler time in Ballard’s history. Wave to us! We’ll post pictures after the parade.
Since 1889, the Norwegian-American community of the Pacific Northwest has celebrated Norwegian Constitution Day with a parade in Ballard. It is the third largest celebration of the holiday in the world. Read more about this 122-year-old community tradition at http://www.17thofmay.org/ .
