"Venetian evening"

August 28, 2011

Here in Ostrobothnia we celebrate a thing called Villaavslutning or “Veneziansk afton” (loosely translated to Venetian evening) which is a farewell to summer. This is typically celebrated the last Saturday in August.

Usually you leave town for the day and evening and go out to your own or somebody you knows cottage, where you celebrate the end of summer, the climax of the evening is traditionally fireworks.

This year I spent my villaavslutning at Villes cottage in Jurva with Ville, Victoria and Paulina.
