The “Boy’s Brigades” may be seen in the streets in the summertime, all cars have to stop for them. It should not be any problem hearing them. At the Norwegian Constitution Day, May 17th, you can see most of the “Boy’s Brigades” in parades.

Feel free to walk behind the “Boy’s Brigade”, but don’t try to walk through the parade! Many young boys, too young to join the brigade usually walks behind the brigade.
