Syttendae mai: Bunader

photo by Ballard Avenue

It was another great Syttendae mai parade. We'll post some pictures of it over the next few days. Here you see a group of Norwegian women wearing their bunader, the national dress of Norway. Different regions of Norway have different styles of bunader, rather like different clans in Scotland have different tartans. I don't know what region this group represents but they look pretty good doing it.
