In 2013, the Sandcastle will be erected in the harbour of Lappeenranta for the tenth time. The opening ceremony will take place on 8 June 2013. On the 10th anniversary, the theme will be Kalevala, based on Finland’s national epic.
The Fortress cape offers a lot of exciting activities for children. They can for example ride carousels or a little train, play floorball and explore the Playhouse Village. Visitors can also participate in making Kalevala-themed sculptures during the summer.
The Sandcastle area is open from 8 June–31 August at 10–21. Free entry.
