Friday night there are several Carnival themed events at various Tavernas in Acharavi. In Roda Drossia is decorated ready for their theme night tonight.
Saturday morning the Recycling Centre have organised the first village clear up of the year. Meet on the beach opposite Aphrodite at 11:30am to be given gloves and sacks and advised where to clean. The beach is looking ok and there is probably less than half the seaweed on it as there was this time last year.
Sunday is Carnival in Nymphes. The floats are due to leave there at 4pm and will come through Platonas, Sfakera and onto Roda and maybe go as far as Acharavi before returning to Nymhes for a street party. There will be music, dancing, food and of course the burning of the effigy from the procession.
Due to Carnival there are no village football games this weekend.
This afternoon, 9th, there is a childrens party at Tropicana; the children all turning up in costumes some carnival themed others just fancy dress like Spiderman! No doubt fun will be had by all.
Arabas restaurant is having an Oriental Show tonight (they also had the same last night); judging by the poster it involves a lot of belly dancing.
Tomorrow morning in Nymphes ay 11am there is a pre carnival Treasure Hunt for the youngsters.
The beach clean; included the seafront road (sweep all sand from gutters and the weeds growing); was attended by about 20. Everyone filled several sacks and all was cleaned from Alexandros (Golden Sands) to past the Coral on the Acharavi side as well as the land behind the rubbish bins behind the bus stop near the kiosk. A lovely sunny morning to stroll along the beach picking up rubbish. Lets hope it stays clean !!!!
