This was Vappu 2015

Vappu was again a blast. And the weather also played along just fine. Taken into account that both the day before and after were rainy it couldn't have been much better. Here are some impressions of Vappu 2015 in Helsinki.

Not only Havis Amanda got a white cap

Picknick day

Do you have everything packed? Or are you already at Kaivopuisto? The big Vappu picknick at the Kaivopuisto park at Ullanlinnanmäki is going on right now.

Vappu at Kaipopuisto

It is the place to be. The rest of the city is going to be there as well. So grab some food, some sparkling wine and a blanket. And maybe an umbrella just to be save and head out there to celebrate Vappu and the beginning of May outside with thousands of others.

Have a great day!
