@Green Giant: Pink News says, " More than 100,000 people reportedly attended Helsinki Pride on Saturday." Xinhua says, "According to police figures, the annual Helsinki Pride Parade for sexual equality on Saturday attracted 100,000 marchers". Yle "Some 100,000 people flocked to the Senate Square in Helsinki on Saturday for Helsinki Pride". So it should not seem that 100 thousand was spread for the week. It happened in a day.

This seems a little confused. The organisers also say 70,000 people over seven days. I’ll defer to your links. Green Giant (talk) 22:59, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
@Green Giant: Sounds like a situation for carefully wording things so as to distance our selves by attribution from facts that we cannot be entirely certain of? --Pi zero (talk) 23:02, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
Acagastya is correct. I misread the organisers website: it is a prediction of 70,000 because it is an advertisement - "Seven days, 70 thousand people, over 80 events in 50 different locations in sunny Helsinki – you don’t want to miss this!" —Green Giant (talk) 23:11, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
