Students celebrated Shrove Tuesday in Kaivopuisto


The students celebrated Shrove Tuesday with their traditional festivities in Kaivopuisto, Helsinki. The festivities included music, competitions and, of course, the legendary downhill race, where teams piloted their home-made sleds down the Ullanlinnanmäki hillside in the hope of winning the grand prize.

The Board of the Student Union took also part in the downhill race. In their yellow shirts and banner the Board wanted to show their concerns on students’ subsistence.
