The traditional event of the ''Kapetania'' takes place on the last Sunday of the Carnival in Serifos Island. According to tradition, two teams, each one with a captain, stage a theatrical conflict outside the Monastery of the Taxiarches. The custom has been kept alive thanks to the efforts of the Serifos Women's Association.
On the island of Skyros in the middle of the Aegean Sea, the sound of hundreds of bells vibrates the old town (Chora) during Apokries celebrations. The main figure of the island’s celebration is the “Old Man” (Geros).
