Parga on 15 August full of fireworks – flight
On August 15 every year, “varkarola”, an old tradition revives. It represents the return of the inhabitants of Parga and the Holy Relics to Parga after it was freed. According to the town’s history, its inhabitants abandoned it when the British sold it to Ali Pasha in 1819. Two rows of sailing boats from the castle and Paloukes location, decorated with Venetian lanterns, enter the harbor where the crowds welcome them with fireworks and festive interjections.
