Norwegian “Midsummer” Bonfire

Spectacular Midsummer festival in Norway!

Each year Norway is starting the summer with a massive celebration called Slinningsbålet.
Norway builds a massive midsummer bonfire and this year they beat their own record.
The bonfire is 34 meters high one meter higher than last year .

Watch in the video below how the tower is being built.

The flaming tower is always built on a small piece of land that is surrounded by the ocean so when it topples, it falls into the water and can’t cause any damage.
