Carnival of Light, Linnanmäki


Linnanmäki amusement park in Helsinki has been celebrating its Carnival of Light during the last week.  I visited the carnival on Saturday night with family. The night was warm, no rain and thus the park was packed with people. I’m kind of a tenderfoot but took one ride in the spooky train. We had so much fun!

Linnanmäki = LINTSI (literal translation Castle's Hill) was opened in 1950 and is owned by non-profit Lasten Päivän Säätiö (Children's Day Foundation), which operates the park in order to raise funds to Finnish child welfare work. In 2017, the foundation donated a total of 4.5 million euros. Annually the park is visited by over 1 million guests. Linnanmäki is the biggest & most popular amusement park in Finland. It has many rides of different sizes. It also has other attractions, such as arcades, games, kiosks, restaurants and an outdoor stage on which different performers appear in the summer.

    1. There were masses of people! Every Finnish family with kids tries to go once a year to Linnanmäki! It's a tradition.

  2. Liebe Riita,
    so schöne Bilder vom Rummel, so sagen wir hier.
    Aber mit Rummel habe ich nicht mehr am Hut und auch die Fahrgeschäfte (wir sagen "Kotzmaschinen") nee, nichts für mich. Trotzdem werde ich noch einen Tandemsprung wagen.
    Das ist auch was ganz anderes habe ich mir sagen lassen.

    Hab eine Gute Woche und liebe Grüße Eva

  3. Die 'Kotzmaschinen' sind auch nichts für mich :))) In meiner wilden Jugend habe ich sicherlich Achterbahn gefahren und besucht andere Kotzmaschinen, aber diese Zeiten sind wirklich hinter geblieben!

  5. Riitta - this is the first time I have heard of an amusement park that is operated as a fund-raising effort for a charity. How wonderful!!! I can imagine it is a lot of work for them to install the lights for this event (or maybe the lights are always there but not turned on?) Congratulations that you went on a ride! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday, and enjoy your week ahead!

    1. Thank you Angie! The money goes really to a good purpose! They must have the most lights on their spots, otherwise too much work. Enjoy your vacation!

  16. Carnivals are fun for me to read about, but I get quite anxious around crowds so I never go. Love your photos, Riitta! You captured the spirit of carnival so wonderfully!!
