Events to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia

The Republic of Estonia will celebrate its 100th anniversary on February 24, 2018. Unlike elsewhere in Estonia, in Pärnu, celebration of the Independence Day will begin one day earlier, on 23 February instead of 24 February. There are historical reasons for this: Pärnu was the place where the Independence Manifesto was first read out from the balcony of Endla Theatre on 23 February 1918.
