Let There Be Light!
Christmas and New Year’s have passed, but the city of Helsinki is still celebrating with the Season of Light. Prominent buildings throughout the city are illuminated in an effort to brighten these darks days of winter and shed new light on Helsinki. In addition to the light installations, there are also other attractions, including a Fire Circus. The festivities began on New Year’s Eve and will continue until January 9th.
