Yes, at this event, Norwegians and Norway visitors alike came together to actually celebrate bad weather! The Bergen Rain Festival was the one annual event in Norway that asked for bad weather in Norway outright.

In the streets, amused Bergen visitors found vending machines with umbrellas and rain gear. The Rain Festival's highlight was a large street parade across Bergen: the "Raincoat & Umbrella Parade".

Spiting the bleak October weather in Norway, was possible at this annual festival with thousands of others, in a great - not bleak - mood.
