First report of the last winter market day of 2016

Today is Saturday, February 6th 2016, and it is the last day of the 2016 Jokkmokk winter market. Atleast when it comes to the street market; many of the exhibitions will still be open after the market closes. The weather is good, although with cloudy skies and snow. The temperature is -12 degrees Celsius.

After having left the camera (and its memory card) at the office yesterday, I have lots of material to publish today. I’ll do it whenever I get a break in the busy schedule, but first of all I’m going to visit the market area and the snow stage where the Sami National Day is celebrated today. At 14:00, I will participate in the reindeer race – competing in the first round against a visitor from Germany.

Here are some photos from earlier:
