Enjoying the Carnival in Rethymnon

Historical Background of the Carnival of Rethymnon
The Carnival in Rethymnon possesses a historical background of almost one hundred years. This carnival has been updating from time to time. The humorous elements were the very first ones being performed in this carnival dating back to 1915.

At that time, the Rethymnon Carnival had romantic dances while welcoming the respected ‘His Majesty King Carnival’ as part of the celebrations. These were some of the events celebrated in an adventurous atmosphere where people were unable to control their laughter.
