Imatrankoski Rapids will flow free on the New Year’s Day

11/3/2019 1:04 PM

Welcome to celebrate New Year in Imatra

At Imatra, the year will mostly change in a very traditional manner but with some new twists.

The New Year’s event at Inkerinaukio Square will start at 19:30 on 31 December 2019. The speech on behalf of the City will be followed by an extreme stunt. The firework show will start at around 20:00.

Imatrankoski Rapids will flow free on the New Year’s Day at 14:00 instead of the New Year’s Eve.

On the New Year’s Day, music from the Karelia suite (Alla marcia) by Sibelius will be played at the rapids show.

The rapids shows are always subject to change due to weather conditions in winter. If the show is preceded by severe frost, the gates of the dam will not be opened.
