These are the days!

May 9-11; free adm;

The enclave will become a hive of activity including concerts, a  night run through the zoo, and on Saturday at 12:00, the clock tower at the town hall will be ringing out Eurovision hits! 

Some streets are holding parties. Værnedamsvej, the Paris of Vesterbro, will be transformed into an extended street cafe with musicians and magicians. 

Saturday has a Eurovision theme. You can get special hair and make-up done at the Frederiksberg Centre, and watch the contest outdoors at Solbjergs Plads. 

Fingers crossed for good weather.
