And so summer has begun. While the temperature would not convince you of that, the fact that streets are basically empty and parking spaces in the center are pretty easy to get points to an exodus that has happened and is still happening. It is my first summer in Aalborg that I am taking holiday in the second half of the six-week school break (though our girls are already with their grandparents in Germany) – so I am getting to experience this for the first time. It’s nice. Stress-free travel to work in Viborg, a generally relaxed atmosphere, and the feeling that one can stretch out and just lie in the grass.
With that, of course, comes a subdued activity calendar in the city. There are some things going on but they are not many. I have listed a few this weekend. The big one is Aalborg Pride, which starts with a parade from Kildeparken down Vesterbro and on to Karolinelund, where a party will crackle until midnight. Next week is the Middle Ages fair in Kildeparken. There are also two flea markets at the harbor and in Louise Plads, treasure hunt for small children at Costa del Nordkraft, and a Platform 4 music night tomorrow. But that’s about it…Check out the Events Calendar for all the details!
And with that I sign off for a few weeks. Enjoy your holiday, wherever in the world you are!
