Ethnic events  
One of the most typical ethnic events is the annual celebration of  the Norwegian Independence Day (Constitution Day) on May the 17th. Many Norwegians take to the streets attired in a variety of traditional folk costumes ( bunad ). Schools and institutions, bands and sports clubs, organisations and businesses are represented in the many parades through the city.
