2018 The Association of Pontian Rizos dances Titara in the Mill of the Elves

The Magic of Christmas Returns ... In a truly magical place ... in the city of Trikala and in the old "Matsopoulos Mill", the Magic of Christmas comes to life in an impressive way this year as well. From the end of November until the beginning of January, the old chimneys come forward and spread incredible smells. The gears are lubricated, the machines are repaired and they are ready to make as many toys and sweets as they can. The "Elven Mill" is the most impressive example of the development and operation of cultural action by a Local Government Organization in Greece. By common confession today the "Elven Mill" is in many ways (operating days, number of events and activities, promotion, attendance, etc.) the leading event (not just Christmas) in Greece.
