In Oslo, up to 3,000 people gathered at St. Hanshaugen and Frognerparken on Saturday and Sunday. 

The police in Oslo estimate that there were close to 2,000 people at St. Hanshaugen around 1 AM on Sunday and that the crowd was reduced to around 600 just before 2:30 AM.

“A lot of people gathered – a lot of young people, and many are intoxicated. There is very little focus on infection control and a good deal of music. A little loud at times,” operations manager Gjermund Stokkli in the Oslo Police District told newspaper VG.

However, the atmosphere was good, and people followed police orders to calm down.

Fireworks in Frognerparken

Stokkli told the newspaper Dagbladet that almost 1,000 people gathered in Frognerparken. There, however, people followed the infection control rules better.

“In Frognerparken, fireworks have also been fired on a couple of occasions. That is not allowed, but we have not received any reports that people are injured,” Stokkli said.

A lot of people and a lot of crowds were also spotted in Nygårdsparken in Bergen on Saturday night and Sunday night, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports.

Despite the large gatherings, the police have not reported any serious incidents in connection with the gatherings.
