This day which is celebrated all over Greece since it is dedicated to honour St. Mary, could not pass without a celebration at Mesta, where people grasp every occasion for dancing. If someone wants to attend the feast he should book a table in advance. The whole event is unforgettable for those who have seen it.
Easter in Mesta
The typical custom of rocket warfare on Saturday high in the village of Vrontados (6 km north of the city) between the parishes of Saint Mark and Virgin Mary of Erethani. Thousands of improvised rockets mark the dome and the emblem of St. Mark on the one hand and the watch of Virgin Mary of Erethani on the other and the war starts from afternoon with fires spurting each other, a little while there is a temporary pause to come faithful to the church.
