This Weekend!

October 29th, 30th & 31st

What to do, what to do... the possibilities are many! Here are some highlights:
  • While Sweden doesn't really celebrate the Americanized Halloween, this holiday does have its roots in European folklore and this is traditionally the week of goblins, ghosts and witches. Head over to the outdoor cultural museum of Skansen to get a taste of the scary Swedish traditions surrounding this magical time of year. Happenings all week long (Oct 30th through Nov 7th).
  • The first annual international Stockholm Burlesque Festival is taking place this weekend (Fri through Sun) at Berns Salonger. Lots going on here... photo exhibition, performances, shopping, DJ's, seminars, competitions, etc; Or just soak up the fabulous & decadent atmosphere. Prices from 290 SEK for a day pass up to 740 SEK for a 3 day pass.
  • On Friday evening you have the chance to play video games on Scandinavia's largest outdoor digital screen... it is the premiere of the latest James Bond game: 007 Blood Game. Just head to Stureplan, it starts at 7:30pm and there is no charge!
  • Plenty of great art and museum exhibitions going on in the city. Just click here and here for more information.
Don't forget: At 3am on Sunday morning (Oct 31st) Sweden switches to Winter Time, so the clocks will be wound back one hour!

The weather this weekend? Cloudy with temperatures between 5 and 10 degrees Celsius.
