Hyvää Itsenäisyyspäivää!

Today is Independence Day. And quite a special one. For the first time ever the big Independence Day celebration that the president invites to doesn't take place in Helsinki.

Instead it will be hosted by Tampere this year. The reason is that the presidential palace is under construction. And rather than finding another venue in Helsinki the idea was to have it in a different city for a change.

The whole celebration with the welcoming of Finnish stars and starlets starts at Tampere Hall will be broadcast live starting at 17:15 from Yle 1. Don't miss it! On Monday everyone will be talking about it.

Hyvää Itsenäisyyspäivää!
