Revelers celebrated…

Revelers celebrated Clean Monday in Galaxidi, near Delphi, yesterday with a colorful ‘flour war,’ a traditional activity marking the end of the Carnival season and the start of Lent. The climax of the Carnival period was celebrated all over the country yesterday and on Sunday with 30,000 revelers joining a parade in Patras. Winds were strong enough for kite-flying enthusiasts to enjoy the traditional Clean Monday pastime but Thessaloniki Prefect Panayiotis Psomiadis failed to get a giant kite, measuring 30 square meters, off the ground in the northern city.
