A very old custom that takes place in a small seaside village, near Volos. The water of the sea is blessed and soon after dozens of beautiful horses go inside the sea to get the blessing.
An ecstatic festival of drinking and dancing to Dionysian rhythms takes place in the historic city of Missolonghi. The grand event is the parade of the horses along with the arm bearers.
This customs takes place twice a year in the Historic Town of Missolonghi. This is the summer one, which is much more crowded than the winter one and lasts for three consecutive days.
I saw people hanging from the windows trying to get a glimpse of the parade. I squeezed to the opposite wall trying to fit the scene inside my 20mm lens. I waited patiently for a horse to enter the frame before I captured the photo.
