Plakias Fundraising & Concert


destroyed shops in Plakias

I mentioned previously the fire on the beachfront at Plakias destroyed several tavernas. No-one was hurt but a bit of a scar has been left. Everyone knows about the current economic problems within Greece and you can imagine the effect this can have at the local level.

So the ever-resilient Cretans, Sfakians indeed, are doing there own fund-raising. If you’ve ever seen Plakias, you’d know what a beautiful unspoiled resort it is and feel moved to help.

Concert on Sunday June 7

Starting at 5pm in the harbour, and maybe never to end, as Cretan parties do, at least going on til late, there’ll be great music, food, and well, everyone will be there – so why not you? Tickets only 5euro, all the money going to the 5 tavernas and 2 bars in need of rebuild.

Bringing together the greatest Brian Huddy, John Bradshaw, Fred Reynolds, Dave Cromack – The Cretan Cowboy, Unfinished Business, Dog Pound Blues, Desperados, Lazy Snails, Carl Axon and the Rockin’ Rebels, it cant fail to be a brilliant night out.

Note – this is going to be huge, which means if you’re driving take a little extra care. the roads will be busy, parking limited, and if you’re parked near the centre, might have to wait til late to get out again! I’ve known roads for miles to turn into giant car parks, totally blocked! Why not stay the night, it’ll an be unforgettable experience of a Cretan celebration.
