Celebrating July 4th with the American-Icelandic Community

In a typical Icelandic fashion, participants in the 4th of July picnic organized by the Icelandic-American Business Forum and the Icelandic Fulbright Alumni Association did not let weather conditions get in the way of having a good time.

This was the chilly day when “This year early winter arrived in Iceland in late spring” was heard to describe the scarcity of summer days this year.   It was a great event with music, fantastic hot dogs, hamburgers, sausage, and pulled pork sandwiches.  All in all, the event reflected the deep bonds between Icelanders and Americans.
