A large number of people attended the Norðurál Games, which were held in the Akranes Hall last Saturday. The games were one of the programs of the Year of Health, which Norðurál’s staff participates in and continues this year, as an incentive for better health. Gunnar Guðlaugsson, manager of Norðurál in Grundartangi, organized the games. The program was mainly intended for children, and the festival was open to all townspeople and local authorities.
A number of puzzles, both traditional and non-traditional, were offered. The children solved a certain number of those puzzles, collected stamps for in a book, and were then given gold coins when the goal was reached. There were a lot of playground equipment in the area and those were very popular. The guests also received simple lessons in this and that, i.e. in aerobics and line dancing.
Norðurál offered coffee to the guests, and the sports clubs in Akranes and Borgarnes organized the catering, i.e. ÍA offered waffles and pastries and Skallagrímur meat soup. An entertainment program was running all day under the direction of Björgvin Franz Gíslason, who attended with his friends from Stundinn our. It went without saying that both children and adults had a great time.
As the meeting progressed, the games got more excited when popular people from LazyTown came to the area and Björgvin started playing with his friends. The children took part in the frolics on stage and there was a lot of cheering. Then when the pop star and disco king himself Páll Óskar Hjálmtýsson came on stage, the team was really dazed. It was clear that the entertainer and his songs appealed to the majority of the guests, who enjoyed a good day at the Norðurál Games.
