Traditional festivals of Mykonos are among the most vibrant in the Aegean. 
One of the most famous and popular is the St. Panteleimon Fest. The religious character of this festival does not differ much from that of the other Aegean islands. 
In the days before the feast, the churches are whitewashed and decorated with flags, the brass is polished and decorated. On the eve everyone lights candles while the faithful who come by are immersed in the scents of basil and flowers.
St. Panteleimon’s feast is held on July 27th in Marathi, Mykonos, in the medieval monastery of the area.
