Midsummer in Sweden

Midsummer in Sweden – a cherished tradition. The successful midsummer never-ending lunch party formula involves flowers in your hair, dancing around a pole, singing songs while drinking unsweetened, flavoured schnapps. And downing a whole load of pickled herring served with delightful new potatoes, chives and sour cream.

Sunny in Estes today!
Contrary to what the weatherman predicted, we had beautiful weather the entire time i was up there for the festival. Maybe he will get it wrong again tomorrow. Estes is in a valley so that might affect the weather patterns. Don't be afraid to drive up if weather predictions are holding you back.

The festival is ON, rain doesn't stop us. Lots of good vendors this year, some new. There is an audience tent to sit under. So come on up!
