A three-day festival known as 'Babougera' began in the town of Kali Vrisi in northern Greece on Monday. The celebration honored Dionysus, the Ancient Greek god of fertility and wine. Locals paraded through the streets dressed up as goats in a symbol of perseverance, also carrying bells, dancing and chanting traditional songs to 'wake up nature'.
