The annual village fair Fiskidagurinn mikli in Dalvík, North Iceland, is expected to draw a big crowd this weekend. This is the sixteenth time the family-friendly event takes place.

The fine weather forecast for the weekend will surely tempt many to drive north and attend the event. The main attraction is the popular ‘fish-soup evening’ beginning at 8.15 this evening, Friday the 5 August, where residents invite guests into their home to sample free home-made fish-soup.

According to Morgunblaðið newspaper, around 26 thousand guests attended the event last year.
