Icelandic Independence Day in Seyðisfjörður

Seyðisfjorður, IcelandJune 17th was the 70th anniversary of Icelandic Independence from Denmark. There was a delightfully small town celebration in Seyðisfjörður that felt completely removed from time, as if it could have easily been a small town celebration in the 80’s or in Tom Sawyer. Seyðisfjorður, IcelandThe town gathered on the lawn in front of the church to hear some musical performances by the youth. Then, the firetruck pulled up and every kid big enough to walk ran en mass to get a ride. They piled as many as would fit in the front, turned on the sirens, and made a big circle through the town, making several more trips until every kid got a chance.Seyðisfjorður, Iceland
