The "Orange" Festival

Here in Samos on the south side of the island, there are a million orange trees. They are the juiciest oranges you'll ever try in your life. They are better than the oranges in Florida, I swear. (I have been to Florida and tried the oranges, so I can say that!) This year, the village of Mili decided to have an orange festival/bazaar and invited everybody to come drink free fresh orange juice, the ladies of the village made pastries, cakes, marmalades and gave them out for free. The village's streets were lined with orange balloons. There was a long table with activities for the kids to do, bead-making, painting, drawing, noodle necklace making, and there were others, like me, who got the chance to show off what we make in our free time. There was tons of jewelry, soaps, and candle makers. There was also an area that had free stuff (mostly clothes) for people that needed items they maybe didn't have. The weather was beautiful and we had a great day!!!

The snack/sweets table, YUMMY!

My stand!

Bead Necklaces, bibs, diaper cakes, a little of everything!
Not for sure, but someone told me they were selling oranges for 40cents a kilo, that's about 20 cents a pound if I am not mistaken!
