Sweden 2010 - Midsummer
It is Friday 25th June, Midsummer Eve here in Rattvik. We have been told by the local Information Centre where the procession meets at 5pm and that it will then walk through the town to Rattvik Gammelgarden (see last post), where the singing and dancing would continue.
The whole week leading up to it the weather was absolutely fantastic and today started the same way. But by midday the sky opened and it just has not stopped raining all afternoon.
But at 5pm, as if someone up there had a stopwatch, the rain stopped.
Some of the pictures from the start of the procession:
