Even the church of the centre has its own name - Onkkaaala. In the summertime especially, summer cottage visitors liven up the village landscape. Summer may be the peak time of village events, but it's not quiet in Winter either. You can get to know the more village information on our own village associations' page, where you can find links to the various village pages.

The site (in Finnish) is a dedicated site with stories and events covering the villages and the region around Kukkiajärvi lake.
