Clean Monday in Athens, March 2009

On March 2, 2009, Clean Monday or Kathera Deftera, on Phillopappou Hill – beginning at 10 AM, the city of Athens will host a holiday dance performance followed by Tasia Veras performing traditional Greek folk songs and the Marina Christofaki dance group.

The city is holding a kite competition and the winner will receive a trip to a destination within Greece (gee, does that mean if I’m an American who wins the City of Athens is going to fly me back to Greece when I redeem my prize?).
