Festivals in Greece. Stavros Panighiri 2006 for Sotiris. Religious feast of Ithaca.
  The Feast of Sotiris
  Stavros Panighiri

Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th of August 2006


The edges of the village were quiet, but in the center of the Square around the Church, Dance circle and Bar, it was the usual push to get through. Those who had a great time last night came back for more. Those who missed last night came to see what all the fuss was about.

Sotiros Panighiri

Festival in Stavros

By early morn, it seemed most were partied out. By dawn, only the plastic cups and a few people, limp with exhaustion, were slumped in the chairs around the Square. It was a full of fun and successful Panighiri, but one can have too much of a good thing, so it's off to bed to sleep off the hangovers. There are more festivals to survive before the end of the season.
