I understand that part of the Nobel festivities is the annual Nobel Torchlight Parade that goes throught the streets of Oslo. has anyone been to this and if so, what is it like? What sort of things are involved in the parade etc. I have also been trying to find pictures of the parade but unsuccessfully.
Thanks

The hosts this year are Julianne Moore and Salma Hayek. Katherine Jenkins will perform too. Certainly, it will be a beautiful concert :) The musical acts include Gladys Knight, Duran Duran and Sugababes. Other entertainers expected at this year's concert in Oslo include Irish boy band Westlife, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, and Colombian rock star Juanes.

from nobel.se :

The peace prize is shared (1/2 & 1/2) between International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) founded in Vienna, Austria in 1957; and its Director General, Mohamed ElBaradei, born in Egypt, 1942

"for their efforts to prevent nuclear energy from being used for military purposes and to ensure that nuclear energy for peaceful purposes is used in the safest possible way"

the press release from nobel.se

The Nobel Peace Prize for 2005

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2005 is to be shared, in two equal parts, between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and its Director General, Mohamed ElBaradei, for their efforts to prevent nuclear energy from being used for military purposes and to ensure that nuclear energy for peaceful purposes is used in the safest possible way.

At a time when the threat of nuclear arms is again increasing, the Norwegian Nobel Committee wishes to underline that this threat must be met through the broadest possible international cooperation. This principle finds its clearest expression today in the work of the IAEA and its Director General. In the nuclear non-proliferation regime, it is the IAEA which controls that nuclear energy is not misused for military purposes, and the Director General has stood out as an unafraid advocate of new measures to strengthen that regime. At a time when disarmament efforts appear deadlocked, when there is a danger that nuclear arms will spread both to states and to terrorist groups, and when nuclear power again appears to be playing an increasingly significant role, IAEA's work is of incalculable importance.

In his will, Alfred Nobel wrote that the Peace Prize should, among other criteria, be awarded to whoever had done most for the "abolition or reduction of standing armies". In its application of this criterion in recent decades, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has concentrated on the struggle to diminish the significance of nuclear arms in international politics, with a view to their abolition. That the world has achieved little in this respect makes active opposition to nuclear arms all the more important today.

Oslo, 7 October 2005

For those of you who can't watch the Nobel festivities in Stockholm and Oslo live on TV, the Nobel Foundation always broadcast it live via Web TV. Just go here and watch!
