Helly Hansen #WeLoveRain Contest Will Have Participants Dancing in the Rain

OSLO, Norway (March 16,2016) —Norwegian apparel and footwear brand Helly Hansen was born by the sea in 1877 and has since been enticing those who both loath and love rain to get outside and enjoy the wettest months.

 Helly Hansen loves rain and wants to celebrate those who get outside to make the most of it. The 2016 #WeLoveRain Instagram contest challenges participants to create videos of themselves dancing in the rain. Let loose and get creative with a choreographed dance or find the largest puddle in town and see if you can grab a passerby – or two – for a rainy dance party.

After you’ve dried off your phone, post the video to Instagram between March 28 and April 17 with the hashtag #WeLoveRain for a chance to win a variety of rainwear products from Helly Hansen.

For ideas – or to scope the competition – search the hashtag #WeLoveRain on Instagram or the “We Love Rain” micro site on
