Carnival celebrations in Moschato…

A performer breathes fire as fireworks go off as part of the Carnival celebrations in Moschato, southern Athens, yesterday. Thousands of adults and children wearing fancy-dress costumes joined parades around Athens and other Greek cities yesterday to mark the penultimate Sunday of the Carnival season. Moschato holds Athens’s biggest parade but the main attraction of the festivities is the parade in Patras, which will be held next Sunday to mark the end of the Carnival season.
