Without the thousands of carnivalists from the schools and the Associations of the city, without the traditional customs of Clean Monday but with a big smile, pleasant mood and a lot of optimism, the Municipality of Ilio will celebrate Halloween this year.
In spite of the times, the city will wear its carnival costume to welcome the Carnival Bus on its main streets, as reported by the people of the municipality, on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 March 2021, from 11.00 to 14.00 and from 17.00 to 20.00. A Carnival bus full of animators, carnivalists and giant mascots will spread generous smiles, carefree and madness, as required by the climate of the day.
Treasure Hunt online
At the same time, the Directorate of Culture of the municipality organizes an online treasure hunt from Sunday, March 7 until Shrove Monday, March 15. Through pirate treasure hunt, kids will have the opportunity not only to have fun, but also to meet historical figures and iconic museums, decipher pirate messages and indulge in strategy games.
"This year, the pandemic forces us to celebrate Halloween in a special way, without people, parades and traditional customs that are revived every year and with great success in the Municipality of Ilio. Even so, we will celebrate them with joy, fun, many colors and even greater optimism, expecting to escape for a while from the difficulties and pressures of everyday life. We live in Ilion, we celebrate Safe. And next year, we will all celebrate together again ", says Mayor of Ilio Nikos Zenetos.
