Let's meet up and enjoy Midsommar at Skansen. There are events taking place all day long including the tradition of raising the May Pole (Majstången) at 14:00.
Here is a Video from Skansen at Midsommar
After consolidating all the advice given and considering the size of the park, a long day of activities, and the potential for crowds on Friday, I suggest the following:
I recommend that you come into the park as early as possible. Then we meet at 11:30 inside the park at a building called Vakt Stugan/Lodge. It is labeled with the letter "I" as an information place on your map. It is a red building, with white and green trim and has a large clock on the east end. We meet under the clock at 11:30-11:45 then proceed to a place to have a picnic.(we will try stake out and reserve a place ahead of time). UPDATE! We have a WE ARE HERE flag that we will set up in the picnic area so that you can find us there also in case you come later. Then join in on the festivities when they start at 2pm. I will mail my cell phone number to participants so if you come late or get lost you can send an sms.
Google "Skansen Vakt Stugan" and then click "images" for pictures of what the meeting place looks like. It is in a fairly central part of the park not far from the May Pole area.
Follow the map you are given when you enter Skansen. At the bottom is the entrance, in the top centre you will see Vakt Stugan and an i for information
Above you see a picture of the meeting place. Vakt Stugan, and a picture of the flag that we will use at the picnic area.
OK what else have I forgot?. Let me know! Kim
