Today the Finns party hard. It's the Vappu Eve. Helsinki is going to be packed with people when they go to see the "capping" of the Manta statue. It's an old tradition and a unofficial start to the party, which usually lasts at least two days. The day after tomorrow, first of May, people continue Vappu celebration in parks, enjoying picnic with their friends and welcome the Spring to Finland. You should visit Helsinki on this particular day because you won't see as many Finns on the streets in any other day of the year! But it can also be an shocking experience..
