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.

The annual festival of Matala beach. A large hippie movement used to live here in the nearby caves. Every summer, a festival is organized with music and dancing until the morning.
