Colours

This week's promt on Our Beautiful World  is
colours
and it was my choice.
I had in mind that it would be around Carnival time so I thought what best than
colours 
as
colours 
is what Carnival is full of.
Our school has been full of masks made by our Art teacher, she is so talented.In all the
colours 





 of the rainbow.
Also our school is being repainted by the Municipality! Look at those
colours
The Fuchsia is my favourite!!But look at the sky too!Yeah!
Last week we attended a very strange parade.It was the Bell Roads parade.
It is the third time it takes place here in our city and it is the parade of people dressed for carrnival and bearing bells.
The tradition of bell bearing is all over Greece and the Balkans around Carnival.
Here is the story about it.
Here are some of the photos I took!
The first group we saw was from Serbia.



This Greek group were dressed like bears and were playing with a dog.
There were huge bells.
 And heavy thick hot costumes.



 The symbol of the Bell Roads.

 Sohos Group was very impressive.



You can see a short video here of one of the groups and the sound they made!


 The leaflets and symbol of the Bell Roads.
It was so warm and sunny everyone enjoyed the day.
And look at that
colour!
Why don't you join us with something colourful in Our Beautiful World?
