Contribution for The Sunday Challenge "various Winter Celebrations, Customs & Festivals held this time of the year." The Grand Christmas tree Each year City of Tampere erects a tall Christmas tree next to main market square. Here's an old photograph from 2013. Christmas parade Part of the Christmas season opening customs is the Christmas parade. The Tampere Christmas Market Since 2008 the main market square became the place for so called Christmas markets held during December. However, there are three market places around the city, and two of them are lively market places every Saturdays throughout the year. This photograph I took in 2012 when somewhat the whole December was very rainy. Tampere Festival of Lights From the end of October until the beginning of March, the streets of the Tampere city centre are illuminated with hundreds of light fixtures from traditional light figuress to urban art projected onto empty walls. This photograph is from Tammela market square in 2012.
