Photos from Traditional Fairs on 14 August

 A lot of fairs took place yesterday and today in churches around Santorini. The fairs celebrate the Assumption of Mary, one of the greatest Orthodox celebrations on 15 August in Akrotiri.

A lot of free wine is always shared with everyone  in the fair.

 Many people attended the fair and paid their respects to the church of Assumption.
 Free food was also shared with everyone, after long hours of preparation!
And of course, traditional island dances followed the celebration and lasted until the early hours of the day!
