As part of its Syttende Mai festivities, the Nordic Heritage Museum hosted a group of beautiful Norwegian fjord horses on their parking lot, which attracted children and adults alike.
"This is our seventh year here and doing the parade," said Rory Miller from Stawberry Hill Fjords. "They enjoy it."
The Norwegian fjord horses are a versatile breed that are among the oldest and purest breed in the world, said Kristin Miller.
"They are extremely athletic, personable, and smart. Sometimes a little too smart," Kristin said.
The horses will be walking in the 119-unit Syttende Mai parade taking place at 6:00 p.m. today.
The parade starts near Adams School in Ballard heading south to Market Street and eastward to Bergen Place park, then turns right onto 22nd and continues south down Ballard Avenue and ends at Dock St.
