I wondered what the coloured balloons were for in Senate Square on my recent visit to Helsinki.
I found out soon enough as I was about to cross Aleksanterinkatu a little later in the day when I saw Helsinki’s Gay Pride parade heading towards me. I was in a great spot to enjoy the spectacle.
There were some interesting costumes.
There was a serious side too.
The audience joined in the spirit of the event and everyone had a great day…I love a parade.
