August 15th – today, throughout Greece, the Assumption of Virgin Mary is celebrated. On Kythira, more than a thousand believers visit the Panagia Myrtidiotissa Monastery. It is a very impressive and colourful event, mainly because of the procession in which the Myrtidiotissa icon will be paraded throughout the monastery grounds. In the evening, in Potamos, there is the traditional village festival. A famous dance group from Agia Pelagia will open the festival with, of course, the elegant ‘Potamitikos’ dance. Come to Potamos and join in the fun! And, if you haven’t had enough, the following festival is in Fratsia, a day later, on August 16th. Once again, it will be a great weekend.
