RINKABY, 28 July 2011, 39,000 Scouts from 156 countries, together in peace and harmony gathered for an spectacular  party– the Opening Ceremony of the 22nd World Scout Jamboree! There was music, singing, drums, trumpets and dancing everywhere you turned!

The rain didn’t bother anyone, the spirit was on top and the energy from the audience was amazing! The ceremony opened with a presentation of all the countries, with representatives from each country carrying their flag and walking up on stage. This was followed by adventure TV star Bear Grylls, abseiling down from the roof and then the three camp chiefs welcoming everyone to Sweden, Kristianstad and the Jamboree.

The Jamboree web team did some live blogging from the opening ceremony, that night page counted more then 64 000 on-line visitors.
