New Year celebrations with fireworks

« Back
Joensuu's New Year celebrations will be similar to those last year. For instance, kids will be given free balloons and a Muumi Show will be staged by PKO in Hotel Kimmel. The traditional fireworks by the Central Joensuu residents' association will take place at 18.00. The theme this year is Animal Kingdom, which kids love. Further fireworks will take place as follows: Hammaslahti 17.30, Kiihtelysvaara 19.00, Tuupovaara 20.00 and Eno 21.00.

Joensuu's New Year celebrations have traditionally proved extremely popular. On New Year's Eve last year, the city of Joensuu carried out the Together light event, in which several hundred Joensuu citizens raised their torches towards the sky. This sea of lights was filmed by a drone camera. There is a fine video of the event and the New Year fireworks on Joensuu's YouTube channel.

Looking ahead, 2018 will be a year of celebration in Joensuu, as the city will be marking its 170th anniversary. We wish you a happy 2018!
