Reykjavík Culture Night is a popular annual event that has stopped being just a night event and now goes on from around noon until early the next morning. This year it was held on August 20th.
I posted photos of the fireworks display right after I got home from watching it, but I think it's high time I posted some of the other photos I took. This first one shows the intersection of Lækjargata, Austurstræti and Bankastræti right in the heart of the city, taken from Bankastræti. It was pretty crowded, but the large number of events going on prevented the crowds from ever getting uncomfortably dense in any given place. The rest of the Culture Night photos will appear over the next 3 Wednesdays.
