Late-May Events: Hanging out with Fireman Sam
Visit a fire station
May 21, 10:00-12:00; Frederiksberg Fire Station, Howitzvej 26, Frederiksberg; free adm; brand.kk.dk
During the months of April and May, most fire stations around the country will have an open house so children and their parents can experience a day in the life of a fireman.
At the end of May it will be Frederiksberg Fire Station’s turn to open up its doors to the public.
So whether you want to slide fearlessly down a pole like Fireman Sam, watch how they put out some roaring flames or feel what it is like to sit in a real fire truck, this will be a day to remember.
And who knows, maybe a real fire in the area might generate extra excitement. (NØ)
Full Moon Party
May 21-22; Redfshalevej 325, Cph K; 150kr, billetto.dk
This is one for ravers still nostalgic for the heady days of all-nighters on a Thai beach. The setting here is downtown Copenhagen, but the robotic rhythms, glowsticks and flamboyant party people should provide a flashback or two. (PS)
22 May, 09:30; Start/finish: Islands Brygge, Cph S; copenhagenmarathon.dk
Around 200,000 spectators will be cheering and waving as the indefatiguable runners pound the streets. Some 10,000 entrants are expected to make a run for it on the route through Vesterbro, Nørrebro and Østerbro. (PS)
May 29, 10:00-16:00; Israels Plads, Cph K; free adm; tradono.dk
A trendy, exclusive downtown second-hand clothes market for the ladies. The fashion blogging stallholders are chosen for the quality of their apparel and accessories. Live music jazzes things up. Shop till you drop. (PS)
