It is a huge fest.  They move it around, it was last year in Milwaukee, but every 5 years in Riga.  There is a choir concert to end it with 35k singers!!  The dance show is also done with thousands.  They also got to march in the parade with a group from Chicago.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latvian_Song_and_Dance_Festival

Wow!  What a great opportunity for him.  I'm a bit jealous. ;)  I'm so glad he had a good time.  What is the Latvian song festival? Sounds interesting!
