Friday Happy Hour: “Villaavslutning”

Saturday, August 26
7–9 pm

“Villaavslutning”, which directly translates to “closing of the summer house”, is a festive farewell to summer in Ostrobothnia, Finland. It is always celebrated on the last weekend in August and the festivities culminate in mighty bonfires, torches, colored lanterns, fireworks, and more. The original and genuine celebration takes place at the summer house in the archipelago.

Casual get-together under the string lights outside the Picnic Pavilion with traditional BONFIRE and luminarias.
