It's CARNIVAL TIME (Apokries) in Spetses again! Sunday 17 March 2013 there will be a parade along the seafront.
Apokries is always three weeks before the start of Lent. As in all carnivals, fancy dress is worn with everyone parading their costumes along the carnival route and through the town. The last main Carnival day is always held on the Sunday before Shrove Monday ('Clean Monday' or 'Kathari Dheftéra') a last fling as it were, before Lent starts. So, Sunday 17 March is carnival day in Spetses and we shall have some great new photographs up next week, capturing all this years' floats and activities.
Plan your holidays for the coming Greek year...
