Just before spring flies by in a flash and the scorching high temperatures take over, now is the season to enjoy the blossoming trees and flowers. Parks, nature trails and courtyards are having their moment with fragrant jasmine trees and lively bougainvillea. Celebrating spring and nature’s beauty is a pop-up event this Sunday at Enter the Gardens in Nicosia. The Happy Spring and Flower Festival is titled Anthestiria and is set to be a one-day colourful extravaganza.
From 2pm to 8pm and in the heart of the old town, in the side street opposite Kafeneio Valitsa, Enter the Gardens will fill with flowers and showcase its green garden, of course, while music, drinks and bites flow. On the decks, DJs Markos and Wander Wonder will be playing groovy tunes while another bar from the neighbourhood will serve cocktails and beverages. Besides refreshing drinks from Swimming Birds, Smokey Dee’s will have a food station with meat and vegetarian options.
“The event is open to everyone with free entrance,” say the organisers, Enter the Gardens, “no registration is needed, just bring your good vibes!”
