Tradition on Mykonos: Hundreds Dance the ‘Hasapiko’, Highlight the Island’s Culture

Whoever was at the old port of Mykonos on Palm Sunday, April 24, had the chance to see something very unique: some 300 amateur dancers of all ages — wearing the island’s traditional naval cap — formed a huge human chain and danced the “hasapiko” traditional Greek dance, giving a festive tone to the island a few days before Easter (May 1) and marking the start of the tourism season.

The aim of the initiative, which took place for the third year, was to highlight the tradition and culture of the island.

The initiative was supported by the Municipality of Mykonos.

After the event, a traditional feast followed with, of course, Greek traditional music!
