The Herring Day is celebrated at many seaside countries because everybody knows and values this modest but very tasty fish. Dates of celebration might be different. For example, in the Netherlands the Herring Day is celebrated in honor of so-called New Herring in the beginning of June when new catch season is started but in Finland this Day is celebrated in October because in this period an incredible number of herring is concentrated in the coastal zone due to significant reduction of the sea temperature. Herring is very popular Russian snack but the Herring Day is celebrated in Russia since 2000s only. The celebration of the Herring Day in the Kaliningrad Region is held in the beginning of April on the anniversary of the first Soviet fishery expedition from Koenigsberg to the shores of Iceland (1948). On this day local restaurants and cafe offer a lot of fantastic dishes made of dried, smoked, fried and boiled fish. Mistress Herring walks through the main streets surrounded by his large entourage. Guests of the holiday can visit interesting exhibitions, take part in family competitions and fanny games.
