Activities for children on 1st and 2nd January at Helsinki

Hi,

Could anyone help me if there are any events for children on 1st and 2nd January? If so when, where? Children are 2 and 6 years are old girls.

Thank you.

We will also be in Helsinki on 1st and 2nd of January. We are looking for things to do with our 5-year old son, too. If I find anything interesting, I'll post it.

Thank you for the posts.

I've read somewhere that there is a light and music show at the Senate Square on 1st January from 20.00 to 23.00 and another for almost two weeks, from 2 to 11 January from 16.00 to 23.00.

Is it correct? Will it be this year as well?

Linnanmaki is great. Sealife aquarium is also there. I think we will prefer this.

Evening activity is still open.

As an alternative to Linnanmaki if the weather is not convenient, I found Heureka http://www.heureka.fi/portal/englanti/

Can anybody tell me about light and music show at the Senate Square on 1st January from 20.00 to 23.00 and another for almost two weeks, from 2 to 11 January from 16.00 to 23.00?
