Celebrate Laskiainen at the Finnophile Winter Frolic
Saturday February 20th, 2010
2pm to 6pm

Join us at Riverdale Park East (550 Broadview Avenue, 3 blocks south of Broadview subway station) from 2 pm to 4 pm for skating & tobogganing adventures! Laskiainen tradition dictates that you should bring whatever “toboggan” you want to get down the hill. We’ll be looking for the most creative and effective toboggans out there! Find us by the Finnish flags.Don’t forget to bring your own skates! Kids are welcome!

After the some snowy fun follow the finnophile troops up the hill to warm up from 4 pm to 6pm (or more) at our traditional gathering place the Black Swan 4 pm to 6 pm (154 Danforth Avenue)! Winter woolies and gear are expected dress! Enjoy some nibblies, beverages and loads of camaraderie to warm the very cockles of your heart! Kids are welcome at the Black Swan too!

Donations Welcome!
Donations of snacks are welcome, bring them to the hill or drop them off at the Black Swan before you come to the park!

Bad Weather?
No problem! We’ll see you at the Black Swan from 4 pm to 6 pm

Hope to see you there!

The finnophile crew!
