On 2 February, Ambassador Kārlis Eihenbaums and his wife Ināra Eihenbauma participated in the unveiling ceremony of the European Union's ice exhibit "Frozen in Time" at the Winterlude Festival.
The representatives from the EU Delegation in Canada and from the Embassies of EU Member States unveiled the 30-block ice exhibit in the historic ByWard Market in Ottawa. The EU ice sculpture showcases the Europe's cultural diversity and offers for a display everyday objects that are symbolic to the EU Member States. These "frozen-in-time" symbols will be on show until 10 February when the public will be invited to break the ice blocks and dig out the objects for keepsake.
Latvia's contribution is world famous items: bitter drink Riga Black Balsam, exclusive handmade chocolates Laima and smoked Riga Gold sprats / sardines in oil.
