2012 European culture capital: the white night of Guimarães

While I always aim for a somewhat physical activities based group event, in 2012 the group decided to participate on the largest cultural event of the year: the celebration of the European Capital of Culture, hosted by the city of Guimarães. With plenty of different activities to choose from, the consensus was the participation on the summer “White Night”. We started the day with a nice picnic near the city castle, and they enjoyed the street artistic and cultural events during the day, until late in the night…
