Three for the Weekend: Latvian-Ukrainian art, book festival, late Halloween

This weekend, enjoy a Latvian-Ukrainian joint exhibition, explore the world of books in Latvia at the Rīga Book Festival, or celebrate a late Halloween at the newly established Bauska Halloween park.

Mariupol is not broken

From November 5 to 25, the Latvian Artist Union (LMS) Gallery will display the exhibition "Маріуполь не скорний" (Mariupol is not broken). The exhibition includes the works of modern Ukrainian and Latvian artists, which “painfully allow to feel the scars of war, while also revealing the power of Ukraine, spite and self-esteem, which has not allowed and will not allow them to fall on the face in front of cruel, physical overpower”, the organizers said.

The opening of the exhibition takes place on November 4, 17:00, and it will be available until November 25 at the LMS Gallery (11. novembra krastmala 35, Rīga).

Rīga Book Festival

On November 4 and 5, the publishers of Latvia are organizing a celebration of books with book openings, conferences and discussions at the National Library of Latvia. The full program of the two-day event is available on the gramatizdeveji.lv website. The Rīga Book Festival is taking place for the 22nd time.

Late Halloween

In case you haven't managed to celebrate Halloween or simply cannot get enough of the spooky festival, the new Horror Park in Bauska offers a Saturday of fun, fear and festivities. The evening will conclude with Latvian rock band Dzelzs Vilks' concert. The park (Helovīnu šausmu parks) is located at the Bauska Castle Hill (Bauskas pilskalns).
