Last week I saw colourful party happen on the beach in Lindos. The photos were amazing with a mixture of ages all having fun. And all of it in aid of a wonderful project to build a playground and park for the children of Lindos. I found out more about the event and the project.
August 15th is a very important Orthodox holiday. Today is also a great excuse for a party Greek style and there will be a few things going on around Rhodes on the day.
Looking for a different type of festival on the island of Rhodes we went to the Food Festival. It is always fun to find different things to do on the island and we are always looking out for good food too. The Food Festival of Rhodes is in its second year and we headed up to Rhodes town last night to check it out.
One of the larger festivals on the island and happening outside the tourist season, the orange festival is a traditional local festival. Free to enter, go with a group of friends and enjoy the atmosphere. Always popular with locals and expats coming from all over the island to help celebrate the orange harvest.
If you find yourself in Greece during Easter expect something a little different. There’s very little chocolate in the shops and hardly any bunnies at all.
Easter here is a serious religious event with a week of events all centred around the church.
