Laskiainen is a mid-winter Finnish cultural festival with sliding and craft demonstrations at the Loon Lake Community Center in Palo, MN. This is the 80th annual! Our St Urho Celebration‘s got nothing on these intrepid Finnish folks!

Buses will return from Loon Lake Community Center at 1:30pm

And Arriving at Finland Co-op at approx. 3:15pm

Transportation and sliding are free of charge.  There are refreshments, baked goods and crafts for sale at the event. More info and the complete event poster here:

This is made possible in part by Northland Foundation’s “AGE to Age” Program!  AGE to Age is a program about bringing the generations together. We really appreciate that in this case, both young and old get to experience such a great Finnish cultural event together.
