Some 200 cars gathered outside the Litexpo exposition center in Vilnius. The majority of participants decorated their cars with Lithuania's flags, and quite a number of them were with families and kids. There were also motorcycles and quadrocycles in attendance.

The organizers of such parades said similar events also took place in other Lithuanian cities.

Traditionally, nationalists hold a march in Vilnius on March 11, often criticized for their nationalist chants.

Lithuania restored its independence on March 11, 1990.
