Fireworks are not allowed in the centre of Levi village on New Year's Eve from 6 pm on December 31st until 2 am on January 1st.
As in previous years, the use of fireworks is prohibited in the centre of Levi and the front slope on New Year's Eve. The ban on the use of fireworks aims to both prevent fires in the densely built village center and to guarantee the safety of everyone gathering on the front slope area to watch the public fireworks display organized on New Year's Eve.
The use of fireworks is prohibited in the area shown on the map below from Sunday 31 December 2023 at 6:00 p.m. until Monday 1 January 2024 at 2:00 a.m. Levi's traditional New Year's fireworks are organized near the front slope on New Year's Eve at midnight. If you intend to shoot your own fireworks outside of the prohibited area, please remember to take into account time when use of fireworks is allowed in Finland (December 31st at 18:00 - January 1st at 02:00) and the instructions of the Finnish Safety and Chemicals Agency Tukes on the safe use of fireworks.
