Open-air festivities at Lucavsala and Mežaparks
The largest Easter event is expected on April 9 at the Lucavsala recreation park. From 11:00 to 15:00 there will be activities for big and small – folklore performances, swinging, egg races, birdcage workshops, egg painting workshops, picnic, quizzes and the like.
