LSM - More people than ever witnessed the amazing sights and sounds of the annual 'Staro Riga' (Riga shines) illuminations from November 14 to 18, according to estimates from Riga City Council.

By the time the festival drew to a close on Tuesday night, almost 500,000 spectators had taken in the wide variety of light installations, demonstrations and optical illusions, all taking place against dark Baltic skies as winter approaches.

On November 18 alone, which was a national holiday and featured a spectacular fireworks display on the banks of the River Dauagava, around 100,000 people were in attendance, a council press statement said.
