      Scout-activities for kids.
    by Regina1965

On the 17th of June there are a lot of activities for the kids in Hallargar­ur and Hljˇmskßlagar­ur. You will see a horde of people going from LŠkjargata and FrÝkirkjuvegur to Hallargar­ur, which is right next to The National Gallery of Iceland (Listasafn ═slands), but in that garden there are a lot of fun activities f.ex. clowns, Kung-fu, Aikido and fenching shows, mini-golf, fortune-tellers etc. Then you walk to the end of FrÝkirkjuvegur and into Hljˇmskßlagar­ur (see the pictures) where the Scouts organize the activities, there are inflated castles and stuff all over, a magician, a sky-diving show and a lot of tents with food and helium-balloons. There is also a veteran-car show in Skoth˙svegur, by the bridge dividing the pond Tj÷rnin.
