Imanta’s annual Ligo celebration was a day of great fun, and will surely be remembered as one of the most eventful gatherings of Edmonton’s Latvian community. Over 70 attendees made the trek to the Rud0vics’ property at Lake Isle on June 27th, with guests coming from as far as Portland Oregon and Riga. It was a full day of wreath-making, fire-jumping, pierag tasting, and pig-roasting. Of course, there were many reunions of old friends and introductions of new members and visitors. Thanks to all who attended!

Some highlights:
