Pride parade likely to disrupt traffic in Helsinki

The Pride parade to be organised on Saturday will have an impact on traffic arrangements in the area of the Helsinki city centre, said police in a press release.

All other traffic will be rerouted from the parade route. Aviation will be restricted in Kaivopuisto.

Participants will gather on the Senate Square at 10:00 a.m., and the parade will start moving at noon.

The parade will start at Senate Square and will end at Kaivopuisto via Aleksanterinkatu, Mannerheimintie, Pohjoisesplanadi, Fabianinkatu, Eteläinen makasiinikatu, Kasarmikatu and Neitsytpolku.

The parade will affect other traffic especially around the Senate Square, in Mannerheimintie, and from Esplanadi to Kaivopuisto.

Police advised the people who will travel to South Harbour or the Katajanokka Harbour to drive via Sörnäinen and Pohjoisranta.

“The police will ensure the peaceful progress of the event and public order throughout the day,” said Superintendent of Helsinki Police Henri Helminen.

All Pride Week events and the parade on Saturday are organised by the Helsinki Pride Community association.

The organiser has made traffic arrangements related to the event in collaboration with the City of Helsinki and the Helsinki Police Department.
