Easter Weekend in Pissouri 2017

The weather finally settled down for the Easter Festivities.  On Easter Sunday a large crowd gathered in Pissour square for an afternoon of eating, drinking, local games and traditional music and dancing.

We started with a meal and  listened to some wonderful Bouzouki music. 
We then played the local tradition of " Egg cracking", the honours on our table went to Arthur.

The Next game on the agenda was the rock lifting competiton, where local and visiting men tried to hold up a rock for as long as possible. Ths was followed by the sack race, eggand spoon and tug of war. (Photo's by Efimerida Lemesos )
