Last night the annual folk dance festival Diamantis Paleologos started with all the dance groups being present in full costume and walking around. Later they danced in the harbor. It was again amazing to see how all these people, with so much grace, represent their village, town, region or country. And they came from far. Not only groups from Greece are here but also from Cyprus, Ukraine and Nepal. Tonight and tomorrow you have a chance to see them in the municipal theater at the elementary school at 21.00 hours.
Young and old were there. Many times the elder were leading the younger.
The costumes were fantastic to look at from close by and they are all so full of details. We tried to photograph the costumes from nearby so you can see the details.
The dancers wear their costumes with so much pride and joy. Litsa and Vicky from the Skopelos dance groups were also present!
It was a great experience again and something you should put on your calendar for next year if you have not experienced it
