The Museum Night
On May 19, the annual Museum Night is taking place, with museums open through the night and presenting performances, readings and exhibitions in what's a massive event encompassing temples of the Muses from Rīga to Daugavpils to Liepāja to Valka to Kolka.
Here's a Rīga-centric program of the event.
The Lattelecom Rīga Marathon takes place on May 20. Tens of thousands of people will run through Rīga, restricting traffic and sweating profusely in what promises to be a rather rainy day.
Another almost unnoticed but nevertheless large-scale event is the performance of James Blunt, slated for May 20 at the Arēna Rīga hall.
