On February 16th, the marvelous centenarian Marianolight Luminarie were the protagonists of the celebrations in honor of the 100th anniversary of the independence of Lithuania, besides one hundred of the most precious bells played in unison throughout the Country to officially celebrate the event.

In the city of Klaipeda, the only Lithuanian port on the Baltic Sea, despite the snow and the glacial temperatures, the technicians of Marianolight installed the project ‘Gate of Century’, the main attraction of the Festival (from 14 to 18 February).

Much curiosity and interest aroused these ‘wooden frames embroidered with small light bulbs’, a real novelty for the local population; these light sculptures  had been chosen for their ability to create ‘party’ and joy with their colors and music. The ‘Gate of Centuries’ was illuminated with special light effects on the rhythm of typical Lithuanian melodies. It was a great effort for the technicians to work at these latitudes and be ready for the inauguration despite the bitter cold and the snow!
