Helsinki offers plenty of cultural programme during Helsinki Festival the last couple of weeks of August (please see Helsingin juhlaviikot for the programme and to buy tickets). There is loads of free programme and activities offered to all ages on the Kansalaistori square next to the Music Centre. We happened to pass the square pretty early today, and had to stop to blow giant soap bubbles and add to the jungle of a colourful web of strings. We might be back e.g. for a story time or circus tricks. I would also consider the outdoor movie picnics on the three last evenings in August at 9 pm, if a babysitter turns up automatically (the movies are hardly for children). Please find all the programme in the square here.
Do you engage a baby sitter? It sounds good to have for couple night out 🙂
No, we went there all together. My husband is away the next two weeks again, so there is a need for family time duting the weekend, you can’t have it all 🙂
You always have so much going on in Helsinki, if the weather was warm all the time I think I would consider living there! 🙂
Summers are busy, people need to enjoy all the sun and warmth they can get 😉
Love the string web – that looks like great fun!
I thought it was quite a cool common thing for everyone in the city! I’ll try to go there later this month to take a picture on how it evolves!
