Gammelgarden hosted its annual Midsommer Dag on June 22. The annual celebration features celebrations with traditional folk dances and songs around the majstång, a Swedish maypole, and traditional food and games like kubb and croquet while craftsmen show off skills of blacksmithing or wood carving. This year’s celebration included songs by the Swedish women choral group Cloudberries, the Scandia band, and dances by the Vasa Junior Folk Dancers.
