From the morning the whole village is prepairing for the feast. To set the barbecues, transfer the figs to the Square to build Ambuka, to make Souma and give it to consumption. Almost under the cover of Taxiarhis, the rest of the village is working.

In the afternoon they set the tables in the square so that visitors from all over the island, dance, eat and drink until morning.
