360 m sildebord

Tradisjonen tro -og etter mye hardt arbeid - åpnet sildebordet i formiddag, omkranset av tusener av sultne Haugalendinger. For vi spiser selvsagt ikke hjemmefrokost, når vi kan gjøre det i verdens største, årvisse gratismåltid. Sunt er det og! 

Ved åpningen virket det litt mindre folksomt enn normalt, men det kom seg etterhvert. Dermed fikk folk prøve hvordan det er å stå som "Sild i tønne". Spøk til side: egentlig fungerer det utrolig bra - alle kommer til både 2 og flere ganger, og trekker seg litt tilbake for å nyte bordets gleder (se bildene).

English:
One of the traditions in the August's of Haugesund is the Herring buffet - called the worlds longest herring table. This years table was 360 m long (2x180m). Some years ago, another west norwegian town made a longer table than our's. Next year we fought back - and then they stopped competing. We will always make our's longer than theirs, so dont try!!!!
