  • [01] Carnival Festivities Culminate

  • [01] Carnival Festivities Culminate

    Sunday, 14 February 2010 16:53

    Greece is dancing to the beat of the last day of the carnival, with the western port-city of Patras traditionally boasting the biggest and best-known carnival festivities in the country. However, several other regions in northern Greece and the Ionian islands are known for their distinct customs and rites, most of them based on ancient pagan rituals.

    In the meantime, last-minute buyers will have until 10pm on Sunday and 1300 hours on Ash Monday to purchase their delights for the Lenten feast.

    The weather, though, won't be an ally, as meteorologists expect strong showers, storms and snowfalls in western Greece. Drivers travelling in the mountainous road network of northern Greece are advised to use snow chains.
