Please note: Valborg celebrations are often busy, over crowded and can be overwhelming for some young children. Most events are child-friendly but are not really suitable for kid’s under 3 years. Please also note that many of the events will have fireworks, fire crackers, flame torches and open bonfires. Most celebrations are extremely well-managed with safety staff and first responders on scene.
