The traditional SnowCastle

The traditional SnowCastle has been built in Kemi since 1996. The traditional SnowCastle 2022 season is over.

Snowman moves to the city of Kemi

A snowman is in everyone’s yard, but do you know where the snowman’s home is? We tried to find out where the Snowman’s homestead is, but we were not able to find the answer. The Santa Claus lives in Rovaniemi, that much is clear, we guess. So, we decided to give the snowman a home and a home town. Read the whole annoucement here.

Welcome to Kemi, the city of snow and ice!
