The Spring Fair in Vilnius

I love fairs! The one I especially like is Kaziukas fair. These are the fresh pics made this weekend.
Kaziukas fair is annual event in Lithuania. It brings a lot of joy for citizens and tourists every spring. The fair has been running for more than 400 years!
It's a great opportunity for local artist to come out and show what they have created during long winter season. You can find here: clay pots, sculptures, wicker baskets, blacksmith creations, handmade clothes, natural beer, food etc. etc.
I could not take pictures of all the great stuff because the fair was huge and it was so cold that day, my hands and camera were freezing. I was also carrying my baby girl all the time so there's no way I could walk all through it. I hope you enjoy the pics! Click the pictures to enlarge.
