The birthday celebrations in Helsinki will take the form of a two-day city festival. A new tradition is also being created for Independence Day: a fun and joyful Independence Day Eve. The official opening ceremony of the Independence Day celebrations will take place at the Market Square in Helsinki at 6 pm on Tuesday 5 December. The birthday celebrations in Helsinki will then end together with the Finland 100 centenary year at 10 pm on Wednesday 6 December with an impressive firework display over the South Harbour.
