Street Fair at Torikorttelit 

Yesterday we went to the Torikorttelit, were a fair in the beautiful inner yards seems to be an annual happening. Torikorttelit is the area between the main church and the fish markets with a lot of design shops, the kids museum and a couple of great cafes in Helsinki. 

We only visited the kids part of the street fair:I loved the way they first had free welcoming drinks for kids. They got to choose which juices and lemonades were mixed, and then children were allowed to decorate their drinks themselves with umbrellas etc. 

The actual playing area was great. There was a hammock, fat boys, sandbox and more. The best feature was the perfectly located coffee stand right next to it. (Can’t believe it’s so rare to have a cafe next to a playground as I’m sure they’d be well frequented by tired parents.)

At the fair my kids also made awesome party hats:

There was also a stage. According to the programme there would have been good children’s music and shows but this time we skipped those and enjoyed a a walk, good company and lovely food in Punavuori instead. But the Torikorttelin katujuhlat will definitely be an option for us next year too.
