Ioannina - Carnival Festival at Ioannina Carnival Festival at Ioannina
In most people’s minds the period of the Carnival is one of the most fun of the year. This has to do mainly with the large number of customs and happenings that take place during those days. Some of them are big fires on the streets, around which people are dancing, songs with lyrics that make fun of people or having a lot of "dirty talk". Many folklore clubs organise events where people are dancing traditional Greek dances or reviving customs that come even from the ancient times and the festivals dedicated to god Dionysos. Drinking local wine and tsipouro is something that you will probably will not avoid doing, especially if you join parties with fires.
