I participated in this celebration for my second-time on this March, 10th, 2008. I am well acquainted with the village of Galaxidi because my mother’s summer home is there. The village has a population of only 1500 in the winter-time, and all the locals (”Galaxidiotis”) I know take this party very seriously. I highly recommend attending this centuries old celebration of the transition from carnival to Lent in our unspoiled traditional village of Galaxidi, Greece.
