Night of the Arts is exactly what it sounds like, a night full of arts. Actually, it’s a night celebrating the arts, and this year Helsinki’s Night of the Arts was kicked off with a parade of animals made by the public.
The project was headed by a South African and an Indian artist who wanted to focus on the animals of Finland’s woods. However, I’m not sure what the parade marshal was, some kind of grandfather-y giant bug.
The parade was neat, but it was borderline nightmare-ish. The face masks freaked me out & the music was a bit tripp-y.
The parade ended at the cathedral, where spectators gathered on the steps and watched a short concert with the animals “dancing.”
The moose heads were our favorites.
Here is the entire parade as it makes it’s way to the cathedral.
