Lithuania's 25th Independence Day

Yesterday, 11 March, was Restoration of Independence Day in Lithuania.  It marks the day, in 1990, that the country once again became an independent state.

Vilnius was quite crowded as people came out to celebrate 25 years of independence from the Soviet Union.

There was a parade, several speeches, and military bands from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia played for the crowds.

Here's a video I found on YouTube about Lithuania's celebration.
