Parigina or Kanaria are events of both religious and historical character and take place on the island of Panagia, in front of the town of Parga. On August 14, on the islet of Panagia, a folk feast featuring local traditional music is set up.
On August 15, the “barcarola” revived a custom that represents the return of the Pargina and the Sacred Heirs to the now free city of Parga, since, according to the history of the city, the inhabitants abandoned Parga when it was sold by the English to Ali Pasha in 1819.
Two rows of boats from the castle and the Pavloukas, decorated with Venetian lanterns, arrive at the harbor, where many people welcome them with celebrations and fireworks.
