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[masked]. 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 :)
