Scandinavian pride was on full display in Ballard as the 17th Of May – also known as Norwegian Constitution Day-  is celebrated through the heavily Nordic community.  A mainstay in the city for 130 years, the Syttende Mai celebration and its parade had to be canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.  Regardless, revelers made their own impromptu parade down Market Street waving Norwegian flags and honking their horns.
