Valdemarsvik Summer Festival
The harbor was filled with boats of all sizes including some impressively large cruisers and sail boats. A sizable contingent of motorcyclists also showed for the festivities.
The music was a bit loud for some.
The summer festival immediately follows the annual Nils Liedholm youth fotbol tournament. Liedholm was a Valdemarsvik native who became a star in European soccer as a player and coach, as well as Olympic gold and a World Cup second place with the Swedish national team.
Here are some of the parade costume pictures.
