Norwegian parade of flags in Minot for Syttende Mai

MINOT, N.D. - Norwegians across the Magic City took over the Scandinavian Heritage Park Wednesday afternoon for their annual parade of flags, as part of Syttende Mai.

A group of about a dozen or so residents carried the Norwegian flag throughout the park, signing traditional hymns.

Even some youngsters got in on the fun and the history.

Tickets for Norsk Hostfest also went on sale early Wednesday morning, with eager customers lining up to get their tickets for the festival this coming September.
