To celebrate the 102nd Birthday of the Republic of Latvia, Edmonton’s High Level Bridge will be illuminated in the colours of the Latvian Flag on November 18th from 5pm-10pm. We can not celebrate together as we have done in the past, so we invite you to visit the bridge area on your own or with your family or cohorts and take a photo or short video and then share it on Imanta’s FB page. You can also send your photo or video to and we will post it to our website!

Let’s be united and spread our love for Latvia!
