Does anyone know of anything happening in and around Gavalochori at Easter? Either traditional or religious events or contemporary music/festivities?

If nothing else I imagine Gavalochori will have the traditional candlelight procession and immolation of Judas following the service ending at midnight on Easter Saturday. There may also be a procession on Good Friday when the Epitafios (bier) is carried round the village. There's more information on the main Living in Crete site here.
