Laskiainen, a holiday signifying the start of Lent in the Christian tradition, is connected with Shrove Tuesday, which – curiously enough – is devoted to sledding in Finland. And while many of us might deem sliding down a hill on a plastic tray an activity best practiced by children, the traditional sledding event is open to all.
Join Finnish American Cultural Activities (FACA) and Minnesotan Suomi-koulu (Finnish Language School of Minnesota) for Finnish food, fun, family, and friends to celebrate the traditional sledding festival.
Meet at the Como Park Fire Pits at 1340 Como Ave., St. Paul. No cost.
