The Night of Lights
As the bright nights of summer give way to the shorter days of autumn, the first Saturday of September sees the staging of the highly popular Night of Lights, Reykjanes family and cultural festival. Now a fixed event in Iceland's cultural calendar, the event, which despite its name is now staged over four days from Thursday to Sunday, offers guests a taste of the very best in local culture, culminating in a spectacular fireworks display. An ever-growing celebration of local culture the Night of Lights offers something for everyone, ranging from art, theatre and music performed by groups and individuals, to a spectacular finale under a blaze of fireworks.
