More than 300 loaves of bread will be distributed to residents and guests of Vilnius city in the Cathedral Square on 4 July. The Folklore Day of the Song Festival 2014, which will start with the symbolic bread-bringing ritual, will fill the capital with a variety of old traditions, and flood the streets of Vilnius city with the melody of folk songs.
