Parade then party

Just like a century ago, there will be a parade to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1915 constitution that granted women, inmates and the poor the right to vote.
Originally a women’s suffrage parade, this year the parade is open to all fans of democracy, regardless of their political standing.

The National Museum has provided historical costumes and banners that are worth looking out for.

The parade ends at Christiansborg at 11:30, where Parliament and Distortion have arranged a party.
