Karoliina Autio, who came to Moonlight Skating for the first time with her friends was pleased with the event.

- I noticed day ago notification on Facebook about Moonlight Skating. Ice track was in good shape and the athmosphere of the evening was excellent. I'll be coming for sure to Moonlight Skating next year again, says Karoliina.

The night ended at 8pm with fireworks.
The organizers estimated that about 4,500 people were at the harbour-area.
