Successful annual town festival
The annual Swedish days and the town festival Mærudagar (sweet-days) were celebrated in Húsavík last week. The weather forecast for the week had not been looking good but fortunately it turned out fine apart from a windy Thursday when North Sailing had to cancel all the trips, including an annual sailing to the settlement of Náttfari but the sailing is a very popular part of the Swedish days.
Restaurant Gamli Baukur was in the center of the festival which in most parts takes place by the harbour and every day during the last week people could attend various concerts free of charge in Gamli Baukur. A lot of people visited Gamli Baukur and North Sailing during the week but I think following pictures from some of the events speak for themselves.
