30th of April festival, Uppsala: 2 reviews and 5 photos
Valborgmässoafton, or 30th of April festival, is a day where students dress in funny costumes (most of the time) and ride fragile boats (that they make themselves, for the most part) on the Fyris river. This tradition happens every year no matter what weather it is.
Usually this happens during the morning hours, then at 3pm the students (new and old) meet at Carolina Rediviva to take off their white student hats and at night there are fires lit to celebrate and welcome the arrival of Spring.
Address: Östra and Västra Ågatan
Directions: Very close to Stora Torget and about 10-15 minutes walking from the train station.
