Traditional Fair

Tonight, in the church of St. Aristides, on the way to Exo Gialos, vespers will take place at 19.00, to honour the Saint who celebrates on Tuesday. Then, free food and wine will be offered, while the Pontic Association of Santorini “Akrites” will present traditional dances. The Pontic Association presents itself with traditional outfits, which are replicas of the authentic ones that have originally come from the region of Pontos (today Black Sea) and performs impressive dances as they were practiced by the 1st generation refugees. Dancing groups from Naousa (Genitsaroi and Boules), in Northern Greece, will also be presenting dances wearing their famous traditional costumes.
