“Oxi day” is coming

October 28 is a national holiday both in Greece and Cyprus. It is known as “Oxi day” (or “Ochi day”). If you want to know the story behind the holiday, here is a good article.

I am more concerned about the celebrations that will take place. I suspect there will be a traditional parade in all cities of Cyprus, but I cannot find any information about when and where exactly. I sure that something will be for sure this time, since for two days now I hear the drum practicing sounds from the school nearby my place.

I want to watch and photograph the parade, but I need more information. If you know anything, let me know via the comments.
