Midsummer in Sweden

Sweden is famous for more than the midnight sun, the archipelago and the "surströmming". One of the highlights is the Midsummer celebration which takes place Friday closest to the 23rd of June. We celebrated it this year at Råön outside Stenungsund together with hundreds of others. Swedish folk music and folk dance, flowers in the hair and herring on the plate is typical.
This year we were happy to welcome my parents along as well. Funny enough my father has been married to my mother for 40 years and this was his first time celebrating midsummer in Sweden! 
(he is Norwegian my mother is Swedish if you wonder)

Here are some pictures,
happy midsummer!
