4. Come serve as a security steward at the Crowning of Manta on 30 April!
This coming May Day, it will be 150-year-old HYY’s turn to crown the statue of Havis Amanda, and we are now looking for security stewards to help us make it the crowning of all time. This is a great opportunity to witness HYY’s crowning from the best possible spot!
The security stewards’ task is to keep the May Day crowd at an appropriate distance from Manta’s fountain and the lifters as well as to monitor the situation in general up to sometime after the crowning. The operating area is the block surrounding Manta. The nature of the task is relaxed and pleasant.
We need a total of 20 security stewards who must have a security steward identity card.
The job begins at 3.30 pm on May Day Eve, 30 April, and you will be able to leave after the crowning at around 7.00–7.30 pm, depending on when the police officer in charge gives you permission to leave.
For your reward, you will get the best gift of the spring: a wristband to Linnanmäki that can be used during the 2018 season. Sign up as a security steward as soon as possible (or by 22 April) here: https://www.lyyti.in/Jarjestyksenvalvojaksi_Mantalle_3881/en
For questions and other issues, please contact HYY's Producer Arttu Lehtinen.
