Besides masquerade balls and street parties, there two main highlights: the Grand Parade and the Treasure Hunt! The Treasure Hunt as its name indicates, is a competition between carnival groups and is about decoding clues scattered all around the city in order to reach the treasure!
The Grand Parade, which is held one day prior to Clean Monday, is the biggest party of the year! Stunning floats and people dancing with their fancy costumes fill the streets of Patras. What's more, except for the 40,000 people that take part in the parade, there are even more spectators that watch the parade.
If you are ready to have loads of fun, to dance and to live a different experience, this is a must event!
