We were on our way to one of our local tavernas when we saw the flashing lights of a police car. Our first thought was that an accident had occurred but then we saw this band playing - the firefighters's band, as we found out later.
A large number of priests followed, the procession heading for one of the local churches, the Metamorphosis of the Saviour, which was celebrating the saint's namesday.
The faithful followed the priests.
The icon at pride of place
decorated with flowers as is the custom.
The procession reached the church
the service began and we went for our evening meal.
