Kataklysmos, or the Flood Festival, takes place in Cyprus every year 50 days after Orthodox Easter.

Larnaca organizes the biggest Festival of Flood in Cyprus and celebrates Kataklysmos for several days.

The sea front promenade takes on the appearance of an open-air fair with scores of stalls selling toys and traditional food. Traditional culture takes pride of place with a competition for chatista or rhyming songs in the Cypriot dialect. Other performers include popular Greek and Cypriot singers and dance troupes. In line with the spirit of the celebrations, events include competitions in the water.

They are cutting their spending on Kataklysmos by between 30-35% this year.
