Limassol Carnival: The Carnival King Parade

Limassol Carnival 2011

The people of Limassol prepare the brightest, most colorful and most enjoyable carnivals in Cyprus. The celebration begins ten days before Lent or Thursday of Kreatini, which is the last week where meat is tolerated by the Orthodox faith. It starts with the entrance of the Carnival King, well decorated for the specific occasion, followed by series of parades on the following days including the Children’s Parade and the Seranaders Show. It is highly recommended that guests make early reservations with the best Limassol hotels, because they are easily filled months before the occasion, due to the fancy dress parties they organize to fit the celebration.

The Russian-Cypriot Festival

Although a short event, the two-day festival that happens in June has been a key element in maintaining the close relationship between Cyprus and Russia. It is a festivity filled with music and entertainment prepared by both the Russian and Cypriot representatives coupled with a display of products from both countries. It is well enjoyed by children because the last day of the event is dedicated solely for their delight. Five Star Limassol Hotels design children shows, fireworks, and special concerts for their satisfaction, which makes the celebration a family friendly event to look forward to.

The Wine Festival

People interested in visiting Limassol should rush this September as the region is preparing for its celebration of the Wine Festival. The region is considered the wine capital of Cyprus and for a treat, big wine cooperatives including KEO, LOEL, ETKO, and SODAP together with other smaller independent wine producers, offer free tastes of their wine portfolio. The history of the festivity dates back during the time of Ancient Greece when worshippers of Dionysius and Aphrodite would gather and enjoy merrymaking activities for their honor.
