Honor band hails from Oslo, Norway
The honor band in this year's Vikingland Band Festival traveled more than 4,000 miles for the event.
The Stabekk School Band from Oslo, Norway, was founded in 1915.
In 1954 the band was adopted by His Majesty the King's Guard, who are models for the band. Members of the Stabekk School Band are privileged to wear the same hat as the King's Guards.
