VILNIUS - Kaziuko Muge (St. Casimir's Fair), a traditional arts and crafts fair dating back to the early 17th century, is kicking off in Vilnius' Old Town on Friday. 

The organizers expect that the three-day event, held for the 416th time this year, will attract around 1,500 sellers, including 150 from abroad, and half a million visitors.

This year's fair will feature a four-meter-high bridge over Gedimino Avenue offering a view of stalls spread out over the Lithuanian capital's main street.
