Latvia's Blonde Weekend 金发女郎周末齐聚拉脱维亚首都里加

Hundreds of women are taking part in Latvia's Blonde Weekend which carries the motto "make the world a brighter place".

The idea is to put a smile back on the faces of the people of Latvia who've been ground down by the recession.

The head of Latvia's Blondes' Association, Marika Gederte, who is organising the event, said she got the idea from Bulgaria.

The weekend's events include a parade, a beauty contest and a number of sporting events open only to blondes.

It's all in the interests of fun, but Mrs Gederte says there is a serious side to the festival.

"And of course we have a very serious idea in the background, and it is charity. We are going to open children's playgrounds in the parks."

Mrs Gederte said blondes were anything but stupid and blamed the bad publicity they frequently got and the nickname, dumb blonde, on the character Marilyn Monroe played in the classic movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
