The best friend and protector of forests in Latvia – Pigman – has finished this summer in a special event – the opening ceremony of Wooden sculpture of Pigman, which took place on 20 August in the LVM Nature Park in Tērvete.

The wonderful ceremony gathered both young and old supporters of Pigman. From 12 noon visitors had a chance to participate in different creative workshops together with Dwarf family and Pigman himself – the most active visitors together with Dwarf Daddy made different interesting objects from wood.

Even though the opening ceremony of the sculpture was held in a fun atmosphere, all participants gave the solemn Pigman's vow with whom they swore not to litter in forest. After the ceremony all the visitors of the park could enjoy a theatre play “Velniņi” of the fairytale by Rūdolfs Blaumanis.
