Valborg 2013 after party, picnic, beers, the big fire and fireworks.

This is for those wanting to continue in Uppsala, from the earlier fun (http://www.meetup.com/EventsGroupSTOCKHOLM/events/111639002/)

 

It is time to restock on food, buy some more beers from the supermarket and then find a place close to Gamla Uppsala to have a good time with friends in the wait for the traditional lighting of the huge bonfire to signify the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring, usually lit around[masked]pm

Last year was a blast, see the photos below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bring warm clothes, but dancing round the fire is the traditional way to keep warm.

 

Here is the schedule for the events, for those coming at different times.

 

1. 17:00 - 18:30 BBQ, music and more partying :) 
People who went for the traditional and musical part pf the celebration, can join up with rest of the group at the Ekomonikum around 16:30 and we can all head to the Triangeln for the big bbq party. You need to either have a nation's card or be over 25 to attend this party.

* Of course more liquid magic :D 



2. 19:30-23:00 Welcome the Spring with Bonfire at Gamla Uppsala 
Finally, we head to the Gamla Uppsala to watch the huge bornfire to

welcome spring. To bring or we can re-stock before heading to Gamla Uppsala:

* Dinner picnic

* More liquid magic

Note: Time has been extended as people who wish to stay for firework can.



3. 21:30 - 02:00 Salsa on Volborg 
https://www.facebook.com/events/566346296720057/

For rest of all, there is parties happening all over the nations and Uppsala. So just group up with people with common interest, head for a great night out :)



How do we get between places? 
Most of the destinations are close by and you can walk around Uppsala quite easily. Perhaps to Gamla Uppsala, I recommend biking or bus.



Any questions, add your comments. Contact me if you want to join us at different parts of the day's celebration. My number is 0723100272. I won't be looking at 'The meetup group' or 'Facebook' constantly, so please call.




Lets party hard and enjoy Volborg day the Uppsala way :)
