King Carnival made a grand entrance with a colourful and festive display in Limassol, marking the beginning of Carnival festivities.

Limassol Mayor Andreas Christou said this year there would be a revival of the King Carnival, who entered the town at 7pm last Thursday. There are new additions to this year’s carnival, such as three exhibitions, performances by the Cuban band “Son Cubanos”, three satirical floats from the Greek town of Patra as well as five gala balls on different days.
