Crowning of Manta 2018

Soon we will get to do it again: celebrate May Day!

May Day, the spring celebration for everyone, is right around the corner – and what would the festival be without the crowning of Havis Amanda!

This year, it is 150-year- old HYY’s turn to crown the most beautiful woman in the Market Square. Manta Crew, a volunteer team consisting of a group of festive students of the University of Helsinki, will have the honour of doing the task this time around.

The crowning begins with traditional ceremonies on May Day Eve: Manta is washed at 5 pm and crowned at 6 pm.

Hurrah for the happiest students in the world!
