Trondheim is a small city in the northern part of Norway that's rich in cultural history, but it's becoming a technology mecca with companies like Google and Yahoo having a presence in the area as well as the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
As Trondheim's Russ Parade is far different from American parades or even the other parades during the day, below are some short videos filmed during this parade. It's far from being calm, quiet (though with it being filmed in a posthaste manner, much of the noise as well as the overall feel is lost) and orderly like the other Norwegian parades, but their culture is indubitable about Russ.
Ending off Russ (Russ Sightings) on National Day is Russetoget, the Trondheim Russ Parade in the afternoon. Compared to American parades and culture or even the earlier National Day parades, the Russ parade is certainly quite different.
Russ, which Wikipedia describes as a "a tradition and cultural phenomenon in Norway", is going on the first half of May. It is easy to spot Russ by those wearing (crazy) different clothing. They also partake in different activities... Below, for instance, there is one skiing through the city center on cement with winter skis.
