Mon 17th February 2014On Carnival's Eve - March 1st
This experience is worth to be enjoyed once per year: to spend the evening before the Carnival Sunday in the old town of Rethymnon. Starting from about 8 p.m., the streets fill with people and the big party begins. The most of them are already dressed in the costumes which they will wear on the next day during the carnival parade: either as participants in the procession, or just as spectators. All restaurants and tavernas are open and if the weather allows it they prepare tables and chairs outside in the lanes as well. Music is playing everywhere, the atmosphere is beyond all description. Even non-carnivalists who do not get anything out of the procession will get their money's worth in the night before. There is by the way no obligation to wear a costume, but with a little bit of masquerade it is much more fun.
