The festival of light "Staro Rīga" will be held this year celebrating the UNESCO International Year of Light 2015. The festival has become highly popular and anticipated among Rigans and tourists. "Staro Rīga" is an exhibition of outdoor installations, used to transform Riga's panorama using modern light and video technology.
With the help of modern light and video technology, the festival will present around one hundred outdoor installations - building lights, multimedia projections in parks, on high-rise buildings and monuments. The play of light makes the autumn drabness disappear, and opens up a completely different view of the city.
