Flour explodes in Greek carnival tradition

The streets of the small Greek town of Galaxidi disappeared under clouds of coloured flour in an annual tradition called the Flour War.Donning goggles and disposable paint suits, residents and visitors to the town in central Greece, some 200 km west of Athens, filled hundreds of plastic bags with coloured baking flour and ran through the streets “attacking” each other with the flour bombs.

The municipality distributed more than two and a half tonnes of flour, provided by flour mills in the region.Hundreds took part, while the less brave stood across the town’s harbour to watch. Houses were covered in plastic sheeting to protect them from the mess.
