Vappu 2013 is coming
Vappu is one of the biggest carnival-style festivals held in the streets of towns and cities. The celebration begins on the evening of 30 April and continues to 1 May.
In Finland May Day celebrations begin on May Day Eve. In Helsinki the statue "Havis Amanda", which lies near to the Helsinki market square, receives her white student's cap at six o'clock, at the same time as people put their caps on. This has been a tradition since 1932.
