Finnish Vappu Celebration
Spring is almost here and with that comes Vappu. In Finland, Vappu is celebrated on May 1 and marks the end of a long winter. It is the Finnish version of the May Day, an international holiday honoring the workers in various countries. In Finland, people take to the streets and parks, celebrate spring and welcome the warmer weather. Student traditions including music, singing, and donning of the white graduation caps are an important part of the celebrations.
There will be Finnish music, good food, and various activities for the children: ‘fishing’, face painting, and balloons. Sima and drinks will be served along with salads, meatballs, hotdogs, munkki, and tippaleipä. We look forward to seeing you all at this event.
Please RSVP us at FinlandiaBoston@gmail.com by noon on Friday April 26, if you plan to attend.
