It’s nearly that time of the year again. Dust off your dancing shoes, collect the party dress from the dry cleaners and get your flight to Paphos booked quickly…
The annual Cypriot Carnival in Limassol begins on 21st February and the celebrations continue for a two week period extending out along the west coast as far as Paphos.
The carnival in Cyprus means a near two-week period of celebrations with a focus on food, before the 50 days of Easter. Limassol hosts the most popular celebration, while Larnaka and Paphos offer impressive parades and fancy dress balls.
The first week is called Meat Week (Kreatini) and is the last week to eat as much meat as you can before Lent begins. The second week is known as the cheese week (Tyrini).
Accompanying all the eating are the entrance of King Carnival, the Children’s Carnival Parade, the Serenaders’ Parade and the Grand Carnival Parade of chariots and groups.
Limassol carnival dates are from 21st February – 6th March 2011 for more information click here http://www.limassolmunicipal.com.cy/carnival/eng/index.html
