Carnival and Kathara Deftera in Paleros

Paleros celebrates carnival in the run up to Orthodox Lent and closes, on the first day of Lent, with the traditional Clean Monday (Kathara Deftera). This signals the start of a spell of abstinence with a traditional house clearout. First, though, the fun the village lays on a party that often includes Greek music concerts, costume contests, and a set of entertainments for children with maypoles. The events, most of which take place on the weekend before Lent, change each year and are announced beforehand. A special programme for Kathara Deftera includes the traditional serving of Lenten dishes, the flying of kites and much dancing and singing.

Kathara Deftera is held on Agios Dimitrios Churche, Palouria beach and in the Paleros main Square.
