Unique monument at the heart of Thessaloniki

Πρωτοχρονιάτικο Ρεβεγιόν 2016-17

Οι Θεσσαλονικείς όπως κάθε χρονιά διοργάνωσαν και αυτό το Δεκέμβριο 2016 το Πρωτοχρονιάτικο Ρεβεγιόν, το οποίο όπως θα δείτε και από τις φωτογραφίες είχε επιτυχία.

Περί τους ογδόντα Θεσσαλονικείς και μη που παρευρέθηκαν έφαγαν το πλούσιο δείπνο και έκοψαν τη Βασιλόπιτα. Τώρα ποιος κέρδισε το φλουρί δεν το λέμε… Ας το αφήσουμε μυστικό μέχρι την επόμενη φορά, κι όποιος παρευρεθεί θα το μάθει πρώτο χέρι.

2016-2017 Revegion
