Winter Lights Festival, 7-10 February 2013
The Reykjavík Winter Lights Festival celebrates the amazing darkness and welcomes back the ever growing light in the city. The entire city is very much alive during this special weekend. The festival features an bright opening ceremony lighting up the city, a popular Museums Night where the city museums open their doors to the public, a celebration of International Children’s Day, a pool night with light installations in the city’s thermal pools and the Love Games, which celebrate love and companionship. With a mixture of art and industry, environment and history, and sports and culture, the events provide entertainment for both locals and visitors alike.
