A new event, Fire and Ice will be held by the river Vuoksi in a few weeks. The event is part of the Visit Vuoksi project managed by the city of Imatra.
The Fire and Ice event is a free winter event for the whole family. You can try snow sculpture, participate ice fishing competition, or admire the fire show among many other activities.
The project develops sustainable use of Vuoksi in Finland and Russia. During the project, four Vuoksi events will be organized to test different ways and models of sustainable event management. Two winter events will be held in Imatra and two summer events in Losevo.
One part of the sustainable event management is free public transportation. On February 26, it is possible to have a free bus ride to the event venue and also use public transportation for free elsewhere in the city of Imatra.
