Lemesos Carnival

Carnival in Lemesos (Limassol)

Lemesos is the only town in Cyprus with a full-blown carnival atmosphere, which is enjoyed particularly by children. The 11-day carnival, held 50 days before Easter, starts with the ‘King of the Carnival’ entering town, escorted by a motley parade. There’s also a children’s carnival parade. Festivities close with a fancy-dress extravaganza.
