Any one else enjoy the Carnival last night in Corfu Town? 

I forgot my camera (well, to be precise, I forgot a memory card!), so no photos. However, the Liston was packed. Everyone dressed up silly and dancing down the Liston. Was an amazing sight!

I'm not convinced you will ever get an answer to that one Bob!

I probably should have guessed that there is a carnival in Corfu Town and even possibly elsewhere on the Island? I don't know. Carnivals are big business in the UK with some towns enjoying huge reputations and a massive influx of visitors for them.

Perhaps it's something Corfu could benefit from if only there were direct flights in February. Or even consider switching it to a Summer Month?!

This Carnival can't be switched to the summer months David as it signifies the beginning of Lent. There are many villages which also have their own carnival celebrations at this time.

There is probably no need for a summer carnival as there are Panayiris in so many villages in the summer which are big celebrations in their own right.

It looks as if everyone are still partying in Karousades, as I'm still receiving loads of pictures from the village celebrating. It was nice to see people we know taking part---and partying!Thumbs Up

Yes Maggy, the Karousadis carnival is well thought of in the north of the island.
