119. Midsummer's Eve

119. Midsummer's Eve


This monday was the day of a yearly tradition in Denmark called Sankthans (Midsummer's Eve), a celebration of summer solstice. In the evening families and other people gather and have a good time and lighting the traditional Midsummer's Eve bonfire.

In Trekroner where I live we have a huge event with music, entertainment for the kids and the bonfire on our local lake. I've been organizing the event with a little group of people for three years now (actually the lake isn't more than 3-4 years old) and around 200-400 people attend each year. It's very time consuming and a lot of hard work to plan and execute, but also a lot of fun.

I'll probably post one or two additional photos from the event.
