Place Castle Park, Cēsis

In the year of the 100th anniversary of Latvia, Lāčplēsis Day in Cesis will be the most ambitious. In addition to the usual events – the festive greeting at the Monument to the Students’ Company (Skolnieku rotas piemineklis), the torch procession, the devotional at the Lejas Cemetery, and the multimedia performance at the Cēsis Castle Park with projections and the medieval walls. The festival “Lap of Honor of Latvia” (Latvijas Goda Aplis) will also be held there. The festival is an invitation to celebrate the centenary of the Republic of Latvia within a period of a year every weekend in a different municipality. In Cēsis, it will be the weekend of Lāčplēsis Day when a special light, landscaping or multimedia light effect performances will be included in the program of the celebration, which will allow Latvia to glow all year round until the centenary of the State on November 18, 2018, and the next light festival Staro Rīga 2018.
