Getting closer

The National Day of Norway is approaching. May 17th is not a day for military parades (we don’t do military parades in Norway). It is mostly a family day and a day for children. This picture is taken in the Castle Park in Oslo just after the long parade of all the schools in the city, each led by a band, marching up the main street and passing the Royal Family on the balcony of the castle. The bands are usually young pupils of that school.  And afterwards, many gather for a picnic on the lawn, that is, if the weather is like this.
