Greece will celebrate on Sunday the last day of Carnival (Apokreas). In Glossa, on the village square, a party will start around 3 o’clock. Lots of dancing and singing expected and crazy outfits will be seen.

Skopelos will have the traditional walk around the town: οι καλες/ the wedding. Start at 2 beginning at the gym hall. If you need to borrow traditional clothes you need to be there around 12. The gym hall has the storage place for most of the traditional clothes worn during “the wedding”. From the gymnasium the crowd will walk up to the elementary school and go from there into town. They will pass every village square and end up in the harbor near the Platanos jazz bar from where they will walk to municipal cafe/KAPIS where the party will continue.
