Here is the webpage for the event: http://blueskiesfarm....
Juhannus is a Finnish midsummer celebration. I had not heard of it before, but it sounds like a really fun event and it will be interesting to check it out. As it's hard to know exactly what to expect before we are actually there, I'm figuring on letting that float for now and keeping things flexible throughout the evening.
The plan for now is to meet at the Dutch Mill Park & Ride (46 Collins Ct, Madison; near Hwy 51 and the Beltline) at 5:15pm and carpool down to Blue Skies Farm. For those who don't want to carpool or want to meet up at the farm, I will bring a turquoise blanket and spread it out in a place that is near the activites, beer, and food, but isn't too crowded at about 6pm. Suggestions for a specific location (if you're familiar with the event) would be welcome.
The cost of the event is a $5 donation. Dinner is served at 6:30pm; this is a potluck, so please bring a dish to share. Trout and vegetables will be provided. There will be a bonfire at 8pm. At 9pm and 10:30pm there will be fireworks. Regarding other activities, we can decide what we want to do when we're all there; there will be farm tours, trail walks in the woods, folk music, and a sauna. The event is family-friendly.
Right now the weather forcast for Saturday predicts rain; if that is the case the event will be postponed until the next night, Sunday June 21 at the same time. Hopefully the weather will cooperate; if it looks like the event will be rained out I'll post that information.
