Limassol's flower festival

"Yermasoyia celebrates the arrival of springtime with its annual flower market on Saturday and Sunday, at the Yermasoyia river banks (in Yermasoyia tourist area) and spectacular parade of flower decorated floats (on Sunday, at 6 pm in Georgios A’ Avenue, Yermasoyia tourist area)."

unfortunately, in order to "Save money", this year's flower festivaldidn't include a parade and the festival itself was a couple of stores in the germasoyia parking. So the pictures are from previous years
