Happy May day!

Happy 1st of May, everyone on “Eureka!”!

Πάτρα:Η μεγαλύτερη άνθινη σημαία στον κόσμο κατασκευάστηκε στην Οβρυά - Δείτε ΦΩΤΟ ΚΑΙ ΒΙΝΤΕΟ από τις εκδηλώσεις  Χρησιμοποιήθηκαν περισσότερα από 10.000 γαρύφαλλα και πολλές ώρες δουλειάς

In Patra we made the biggest (5m x 3m) Greek flag in the world with 10.000 carnations!

We’re very happy because the 1st of May is a public holiday in Greece and there’s no school. Also summer is coming very very soon!
