What makes the Sea Carnival of Chalkida unique? The carnival takes place every year on the beach of Chalkida and includes a beautiful spectacle of festive floats, parades and treasure hunts during its four-week run leading up to “Clean Monday” which commences the Eastern Orthodox Lent.
Thousands of visitors attended this year’s month-long events. This year’s theme was the “Battle of the Titans” which wowed spectators as it took place in the Strait of Evripos where the north and south currents of the sea collide under the bridge of Chalkida. The show of the famous battle was complete with fireworks, visual effects, and floating figures!
