Hi! I would recommend to visit the museum in winter time - at the celebration of Shrove Tuesday on February 6, 2016. People in masks going on the spree, baking pancakes, making hotchpotch, dancing, singing and playing games, fight of Lašininis (a Porker) and Kanapinis (a Hempen Man), burning of More (a symbol of winter evil)! You are very welcome!

When I was last in Lithuania I visited Trakai and there was a large craft fair there on the island where the castle is situated. I am sure a visit to such a craft fair (or the permanent shops on the lakefront) will be successful in the hunt for a replacement banner!
