Polarkonsult celebrates its 50th anniversary

Published: May 15th, 2024

And hereby invite the entire Harstad community to celebrate with us.

– We’re grateful for the way the local community has supported us over the past 50 years. That’s why our wish is to give back to the community through a family-friendly party for all ages in Harstad’s new outdoor venue, says Thomas Myhre, CEO at Polarkonsult. 

Fun activities and free ice cream for the kids

With the help of our wonderful partners, Polarkonsult has put together an exciting program for both young and old.

– Petter Ytterstad will be our host, guiding us through the festivities. The fabulous dancers and brass band from Harstad Cultural School, led by choreographer Maria Nygård, will perform for us. Additionally, Sigrun Loe Sparboe will showcase her own songs and bring along the charming children’s choir, Minores. Sigrun will also unveil a brand new anniversary song she’s composed especially for us at Polarkonsult. We’ll also have a brief anniversary talk on stage, featuring key individuals who have been instrumental to us at Polarkonsult, Myhre explains.

In addition to the stage performances, Taste of the Arctic has arranged for children to bounce around in inflatable castles and other attractions. Diplom Is and Rema 1000 will ensure that every child receives free ice cream and cotton candy—while supplies last, of course. DNB will host a wheel of fortune, where children can win fantastic prizes.

– In other words, this will be a fun-filled event for the whole family, says Myhre, hoping that both young and old will join them in Generalhagen on June 13th.
