Fair in Perissa

The weather is great today and Perissa is celebrating today, so
the big, blue dome church near the mountain celebrates the Holy Cross. Crowds of people gathered in the morning to attend the service and, while exiting the church, they got a small bunch of basil.
At the exit, everyone queued to get the local delicacy, fava (chick peas), and wine, which was offered for free.

Then, men on horse back galopped through the streets and everyone admired the beautiful horses.
The fair still goes on with live music, played by local musicians, and a lot of dance!
If you are heading for Perissa, don't miss it!
