Events for families

I spend more time than I care to admit to find events to take my kids to. Most infos online are in Finnish language, which was a huge obstacle for me years ago. I’m happy to share with everyone else the upcoming events for families in the Helsinki area. Free-of-charge events will be highlighted.
Notes:
– this page will be often updated, keep checking it!
– if you have events to share, let me know,
– I make a vow to improve the way to visualise events in this page in the future. I need to do some research about it :).
