(18 September) During every equinox of the autumn we celebrate Lygė feast which indicates the transfer from the warm time of the year to the cold time of the year. From the early days of our history at this time of the year there were customs to make sacrifices to the gods for the harvest, thus emphasising the importance of the margins between different climate conditions prevailing in certain seasons. During Soviet times these celebrations turned into autumn harvest fairs.

Autumn equinox takes place at the time when the day and night become of the same duration. The impressive play of fire sculptures is a traditional event for the Autumn equinox. Sculptures of wood and straw are created by professional artists, and candles are placed into different ornaments and lit by schoolchildren of Vilnius.
