Employees and inhabitants of tervakoski joined in celebration of their paper mill’s 200-year anniversary on August 18, 2018. Several thousand guests felt a real sense of community as they enjoyed music from renowned musicians, fabulous food and fun activities during an outdoor festival held in honor of tervakoski paper mill’s rich history. It was a birthday bash no one will forget!
Especially the village’s school children were in for a great treat because the municipality of tervakoski decided that the day of the festival would also be an official school day! Therefore, the event was kicked-off in the morning with a personalized opening ceremony for all students, their teachers and their parents. The school day ended with a picnic lunch accompanied by a concert in the park. One of the highlights arranged for the pupils was the opportunity to take a selfie with a very popular TV celebrity from the Finnish television series “Putous”.

Children had lots of traditional outdoor games and activities, like pony rides, to choose from. Of course, no birthday would be complete without birthday cake, coffee and popcorn. For the bigger appetites, visitors had the choice of BBQ and Thai food from some great local vendors. The evening highlight-program was dedicated to renowned Finnish musicians and artists that rocked the stage!
What a festival!
