During the festival the whole village wears all its good.

The established horse parade of the Ermionida Association “Love for the Horse steals the show. At the same time, a photograph exhibition from similar celebrations of previous years is organized, while a large screen shows highlights of the celebration and its history, so that the old folks remember with nostalgia and the young people learn.
