The Presidents of Estonia, Lithuania, Finland and Iceland are joining President Raimonds Vējonis to lay flowers at the Freedom Monument and see the traditional military parade along the banks of the River Daugava before enjoying a concert at the Latvian National Theater, the very building where independence was proclaimed exactly 100 years earlier.
Good wishes have been pouring in from around the world from people of all types and even the internet search engine Google entered into the spirit of the day on its homepage.
All events can be watched live anywhere in the world via the Visiem LTV channel, so join us in celebrating the centenary!
Details of the full program of events can be found in English at the official LV100 website.
