  • [01] Floodlit Patras launches carnival

    The city of Patras launched its annual carnival at the weekend in a night of dance, music and light enjoyed by around 45,000 merrymakers.

    At the opening on Saturday of the season's traditionally largest and most flamboyant festivity in Greece, dancers and acrobats stunned carnival-goers with a series of performances based on music from different countries and continents; and puppet musicians tracked events on central stage.

    Bouzouki and brass compositions showcased Greece and the Balkans, climaxing in Zorba the Greek, which marked the triumphant entrance of the carnival king riding his chariot.

    Patras Mayor Andreas Fouras launched the Carnival, whose opening ceremony ended with a giant firework display and open-air party in Georgiou Square, the centre of the festivities.
