'Ilgakasė' is the title of long hair contests that are frequently held in different villages in Lithuania. This annual contest is in Elektrenai, a little village between the capital Vilnius and Kaunas, the second city of Lithuania
The 8th annual Ilgakasė competition in Elektrenai was held traditionally in the cultural centre of the town where 10 girls and a boy in the age of 5 - 16 participated. The program was pretty much the same as last year with hair measuring, showing hobbies like dancing, playing an instrument and crafts making and of course the part where they could show off there fabulous hairstyles and clothing.
The time between the acts was filled with a Moulin Rouge-like group called 'ŠarkA' who sang popular Lithuanian songs during the time between the acts and while the jury was having trouble deciding who would be the winner. Prizes were given to the participant with the most beautiful hair, most photogenic, longest hair and overall appearance. For names of winners, I refer to this Lithuanian article.
