The traditional Baltic Herring Fair was opened on Sunday and it will last until Saturday. The weather has been gorgeous all week. There was a lot of people walking around enjoying themselves on the lunch break I went to the fair. There has been some concern that the number of fishermen coming to the fair is decreasing from year to year. I hope the fabulous weather means their sales will be good too. I can't wait to see what kind of new herring delicacies they come up with next year!
