Nice tradition - every year in autumn in Riga , a light performance festival takes place.
Lot of participants - well-known and new artists, performers, different companies, sponsors - show the best in light art what they can :-) Lot of people on the streets enjoy this festival during 4 days: 18-21 november, from 18.00 till 23.00

    Beautiful presentation of sound and light Tanja. The other dances are very cheerful too. Pancake dance? What a strange and apetizing name!!!!

    • Tanja Tanja says:

      mmm … I am happy you like it :-)
      Pancake dance … it is very interesting .. it just like that dance we saw in Brittany during the Celtic festival - difference only in music - steps and choregraphy are just the same. I will show you later Brittany dance - I took pics of it !
      Pancake dance - because this dance has a song about how mothers make tasty pancakes :-)

    Just a bit late coming in Tanja. Seem not to have enough time these days.

    I like the idea of brightening the long dark winter nights. In France there is a city which has been doing it for a long time now at the beginning of december: Lyon

    La Fête Des Lumières 2009 // Le 8 Décembre à Lyon // France - Click here for another funny movie.

    The running horse by Rémi Brun is there too :-)
