     The Tyrnavos carnival has its roots in the Dionysian cult, and has a satirical concept, without taboos and prohibitions.It is addressed to visitors that love culture,history and tradition,who also want to celebrate Shrove Monday custom  without shame fertility around a phallus ...!

The climax of the carnival events in Tyrnavos (central Greece,near Larisa city)starts on the third Sunday of Lent, with many events in the city and ends on Shrove Tuesday, the "Bourani", the "feast of phallus", a custom that has its roots in the ancient Dionysiac festivals and history is lost in the mists of time.
