The morning of Midsummer eve last Friday looked rainy in Mäntsälä in Southern Finland, but the day turned to be dry but cool. But who cares about the weather, when it’s time to enjoy one of the biggest holidays in Finland.
A hint for non-Finns: If you have the opportunity to visit Finland late June, do not miss this fiesta. But you have to get out from the biggest cities – those will be isolated for a couple of days – and go to the countryside, next to a lake, river or sea. We are somewhere there.

A sumptuous barbecue is a tradition during Midsummer.
Meat, fish, corn, stuffed mushrooms (yes, the sausages are missing!) barbecued on open fire – what else a man needs during Midsummer.
The best bonfires are next to the water.
No, this is not Mexico!
Yellow center line did not prevent parking when people came to see the bonfire. Lucky for them, no meter maids around.
The fire invites people to have good time together.
Machine romanticism during Midsummer midnight?
Sometimes even a excavator can create a suitable environment for spending quality time. 🙂
