Biggest festival in Iceland today

Today is cultural day and night in Reykjavik.
Great festival, with lots of things for everybody.
It started this morning with the Marathon,and other running activities.
About 11.000 signed up for the running events.

And all around downtown reykjavik there is music everywhere,and festivals for the chirdren and grown ups.
The goverment ministers had their offices open today for the public,and they greeted everybody that came for a visit.
I visited the Foreign secretary and the the Prime minister office.
