Swedish Walpurgis in Balmain


I almost forgot to tell you about the Walpurgis celebration I went to the other week.

In Northern Europe Walpurgis is a spring festival that is usually celebrated on 30th April. Swedes usually gather around large bonfires and there´s a bit of cheerful singing involved. 

I attended the Swedish Women in Sydney celebration in Balmain at Antique Floors. It was a gorgeous night, the snaps was flowing and caterers Two Swedes Cooking put on a fantastic feast.
