Syttende Mai i Edinburgh

Syttende mai i Edinburgh

Edinburgh's Syttende mai parade - the 17th May or Norwegian Constitution Day parade traditionally takes place along the capital's main thoroughfare, Princes Street. At the boom of Edinburgh Castle's 'one o' clock gun', the pigeons fly and the parade begins!
