Syttende_Mai,_Ballard,_Seattle,_2010-3SEATTLE – Everyone and anyone can be proud to be Norwegian today in Ballard, celebrating Syttende Mai, also known as  Norwegian Constitution Day.  My Ballard blog lists a day full of events starting with kids games at the Nordic Heritage Museum, and ending with Syttende Mai parade at 6p.m. Friday.

The parade will shut down numerous streets in Ballard, starting on 24th Avenue NW at NW 62nd Street, doing south to 22nd Ave NW and Ballard Avenue NW, the blog reported.

About 5000 parade spectators are expected and with the street closures traffic could be a nightmare.  This year’s emcees include Q13Fox’s M.J. McDermott.
