the Rethymno Carnival has become an institution of culture and creation. Each year its volunteers endorse it with ideas and images that make it particularly special. It is one of the best carnival in Greece.
In 1914 was the first elements of carnival events . There was a long cart that had a huge mandolin 12 meters above it. His strings were white ropes and flowers around him. The throne of the carnival king was mounted above the cart and the King Carnaval was dressed with gold and red clothes.
on Sunday February 28 1960 was the first organized Rethymnon carnival. For the first time, hand-made chariots and uniforms were presented.
in the 80s the carnival had difficult times . At that time, there were isolated attempts by the inhabitants to keep it alive and they built chariots that sapped the news
the ‘treasure hunt began’ in 1990. The great resonance of organized groups also gave rise to the municipality of Rethymnon to call in 1993 these groups to support the carnival
Crying does not indicate weakness.On the other hand it shows how free is somebody to expresses his feelings.
