Nordic midsummer celebration in Manila


Nordic Business Council of the Philippines (NBCP) brought together members and guests to celebrate the Summer Solstice at the Makati Garden Club on 25 June 2016.

“The evening was a blast – everybody got a kick out of the potato sack race and egg relay around the midsummer pole, while the kids had a great time in the magic show. The flower crowns worn by the ladies and the singing over schnapps led by the gents definitely relived this yearly Nordic tradition. And of course, the sumptuous buffet dinner prepared by Swedish chef Robert Lilja brought everyone closer to a true midsummer experience,” reports NBCP.

In addition, a silent auction was organized for the benefit of Chosen Children Village, a home for abandoned children who are physically and mentally challenged. The KLM round trip business class ticket from Manila to any Nordic destination went to the highest bidder at PHP 100,000.

The Nordic Midsummer Night Feast was organized by the Nordic Business Council of the Philippines and Scandinavian Society of the Philippines with the support of KLM and Cricket Lighters.
