Helsinki Day June 12

We will be arriving to Helsinki on June 12. I read somewhere that that is Helsinki day? Could someone tell me what that entails? Will shops be closed, public transportation crowded, etc. Thanks

There are events scheduled, but it's business as usual for the most part. Certainly no shops will be closed and public transport will operate as normal. Most locals don't even know it's happening.

The huge outdoor picnic was awesome...too bad about the rain. It looked like a really good time.
