Is it teething time for your little one?

 

In 2011 Ireland was the first country in Europe to celebrate Latvian Culture, and culture enthusiasts are continuing to promote the diverse and rich heritage of the country this weekend.

 

Latvian Culture Day is kicking of this Sunday, in Meeting House Square on East Essex Street with a huge festival paying homage to the nation.

 

Starting off with an opening ceremony at 12.30pm, festival goers will be introduced to the simple country cooking that Latvia is famous for.

 

 

Latvian traditional sourdough and rye bread, smoked meat and poultry, traditional pastries, sweets and herbal teas will all be on offer on the day.

 

The festival will also showcase handmade candles cosmetics, hand bags and jewellery which hail from the nation. 

 

There will also be traditional Latvian folk song and dance performances in national costume. 

 

33 groups from Ireland, UK, Latvia, Belgium will be in attendance, with guests from the Russian and Chinese communities in Ireland.

 

 

There will also be a series of workshops, including traditional instrument making, games and food tastings, encouraging people to immerse themselves in Latvian culture.

 

It sounds like a pretty perfect way to spend a Sunday with the kiddos if you ask us.
