The official song of the Carnival of Rethymno by Fones tou Notou

Rethymno's Carnival 2014

It’s been one century this year, since a group of people from Rethymno – with optimistic mood and open heart to every pleasant challenge – decides to put some colour to the everyday life of the city, during the Carnival season. So, in 1914 the first Carnival of Rethymno was organized, bringing the original mark of the intentions of the people of Rethymno. Through the years, these intentions turned into actions that exceeded every time the expectations of their inspirers and finally turned to be an amazing event: the Carnival of Rethymno, a live organism, tending to reverse the natural route of life: the “older” it’s getting the better it is becoming!

This year’s carnival subject is focused on this inversion and invites whoever deeply hopes for better days, whoever sees rainbow colors beyond grey to be part of the large, emotional and fresh Team of the Carnival of Rethymno and share, create, have fun and experience things that nobody wants to miss.

We invite you to create and share this experience, having in our mind and our heart the fact that when people cooperate, every day becomes special and life itself becomes more beautiful. It is as simple as that.

Many years before...

After nearly a century of celebrating the carnival, it is time to bid farewell and to pass on the carnival tradition to modern times.

Since 1914 beautiful Renaissance Rethymnon has been celebrating the carnival with its many humoristic events. A carnival of another era leaving behind its nostalgic aroma of romantic balls and the Rethymnians through laughter and their comical antics paying their tribute to "His Excellence, The King of the Carnival."

The Treasure Hunt, an old custom dating back to when the Carnival of Rethymno began about a century ago, was the reason for the creation of 'teams' in 1990, which would give birth once again to this age-old tradition.

In 1993, the Municipality of Rethymnon decided to help fund this popular event and requested the teams to take on the challenging task of creating and organising the Carnival of Rethymnon, which has become the most popular and famous Carnival of Crete!

The Mayor’s Greetings for the Carnival of Rethymno

Rethymno 2012.  Our town will be transformed and so will we.

Being ready for some time now, we now board our ships for the long voyage into unknown seas with the only destination in mind; our own Ithaca.  The Eurus winds will blow our colorful masts which were made by artisans who know how to transform our inner most feelings into feelings of creativity.

We are people who have not lost our spontaneity and our childish enthusiasm.  We are people who persist in seeing life as an exciting adventure and who do not allow anyone to strip us of our dignity or even compromise our hopes or our optimism with economic

measures.

We will altogether sail away on the 'Greek Odyssey'.  This year the Carnival of Rethymno is conveying the message that the Greeks have been tried and tested many times in the past and they have triumphed.  Our endurance has been proven through history many times and our fate is similar to that of Odyssea.  We will arrive at Ithaca despite the bewitching songs of the Sirens, the terror of the Cyclops and the conspiracy of the 'gods.'

So with this confidence in our faith and strength we commence!  And even if every 'beginning' is difficult, let us not forget that 'we will write' the conclusion of this adventure!

Don’t leave any member of your team that is not feeling good unattended

Beware of any source of fire you may have on the float (ex. coal)

Beware of the cigarettes so that they don’t fall on the float or on the spectators (it is recommended to have 2 ashtrays filled with sand onboard)

Beware of empty glass bottles (it is recommended to put them in a bin and have them recycled)

Don’t use spray-foam. It is prohibited by law and it is very dangerous

After the end of the Parade, take care of any team members that don’t feel well
