Basketball game between left and right bank



It happens that not only my blog has anniversary but also Riga itself - on 22nd August the city will become 809 years old. In honor of that, many festivities are taking place in the city from Friday to Sunday - most of them will happen today (Saturday) and I'm planning to visit as much events as I can (and hopefully to take good pictures which to show in this blog tomorrow). As a little warm-up - the picture from Friday, one of the festive events is marathon basketball game (24 hours) between the right and the left bank teams of the city (Daugava river divides Riga in 2 pieces which are historically competing with one another). While I'm posting this picture from the moment when the game wasn't started yet, now they're playing and will play until today's afternoon. Even Latvian prime Minister is participating (in "right bank" team) - before the elections politicians are using every possibility to advertise themselves :)
