    The Barcarolle, a spectacular celebration-festival will be held in the waters of the Ionian Sea, illuminated by the lights of the boats, in Faliraki bay of the town of Corfu. The event commemorates the miracle of Saint Spyridon, as the locals believe that it was the saint who saved the island from a Turkish siege on August 11th, 1716.

    A parade of boats will sail along the bay while local bands will play Corfu's music and dancers will present local dancing.
