A three-month journey through the traditions of Greece is now beginning. Final destination: Easter. First stop: Greek Carnivals. In Greece, carnivals are a major art form and the long festive preparations for the events fill the cities of Greece with joy and excitement. The Carnival season reaches its peak with the extravagant Sunday parades of giant floats and colorful groups. Why not become a member of these groups, disguise yourself, paint your face, dance and sing? In ballrooms. In night clubs. In tavernas. In the streets. Even if you only want to watch the parades, hold your cameras and cell phones high to record the wonderful sight stretching out before you.
Just for a few days, or even hours, you can become whoever, or whatever, you’ve ever dreamed of being. A prince or a princess, a mythological hero, a fisherman, a bird, or even a sea shell. Just name it. Whatever your disguise,
YOU can really be A FLAMBOYANT CARNIVAL-GOERINGREECE.
Let’s have fun!
