Rethymno Carnival 2013
February 3, 2013
For 2013 the big parade will be on March 17.
In the beautiful Renaissance city of Rethymnon, the carnival dates as far back as 1914. Halloween of another era bygone era. Nostalgic scent, lots of dances and romantic Rethymno greets His Majesty King Carnival!
A custom of that old Rethemniotikis Carnival of the last century, the "Treasure Hunt" becomes the occasion, in the early 1990s, to create the "Groups" which later, in 1993, invited by the Municipality of Rethymno, as helper and financier, to undertake, support and give creative life to Carnival, a carnival that at the dawn of the 21st century has deservedly established itself as the "Carnival of Crete!"
