This year's carnival procession who took place on the last Sunday
of the carnival period (17 March 2002), was the most succesful one.
The majority of the local people took place in this year's carnival
procession, with a lot of different themes, like the teams from the Circus, the
Pyramid and the mummies, the Egyptians, Octopuses, Big brothers, Indians, Earth,
Greek revolution, etc.
All the people who are participating at the carnival parade, start
from the square at the front of town hall of Alonissos, and they go down to the
port of Patitiri.
The first stop is there and all the people dance traditional songs
and they sing carnival songs. The nice thing with the carnival songs is that the
lyrics change every year, with spicy and kinky content taken from the everyday
life of the people living in the island.
After the parade goes around the village of Patiriri with another
stop at the neighborhood of Agia Paraskeui. Then the parade continues to Votsi,
and back to the town hall where the participants dance around the fire, drinking
refreshments and wine offered by the municipality of Alonissos from special dressed
employees of the municipality.
Enjoy some of the photos taken from the this year's carnival.
