Warm Springs Festival

Every summer during the first week of July, Fuglafjørður celebrates the Warm Springs Festival (Varmakelda). The weekend includes lots of music, dancing, soccer, concerts, art shows, cotton candy, popcorn, and carnival rides for the kids.

This year, it rained and rained all day on Saturday, which certainly dampened everyone’s spirits. On Sunday, the weather was lovely (by Faroese standards), and Fuglafjørður was a very busy place. Here are just a few pictures to give you an idea of the festival.

I am always fascinated by the differences in children’s clothing here in the Faroes from what we normally see in California. Here are some pictures of children’s colorful stockings.
