March is a time when locals begin to work on their tans as the beaches are not at all crowded. The daytime temperatures are still too cold for most beach goers, but there are always those who will brave the cooler weather in order to avoid the crowds of the summer.
Festivals in Thassos in March include, but are not limited to, The Annunciation and the last weeks of the Carnival season. One day in particular to watch out for is "Clean Monday" (the day that begins Lent and ends the Carnival season.), especially in the town of Potamia.
Make sure to check the exact dates of the events as it may vary from year to year. Carnival is a festival celebrated by Greeks before the Lent begins. It is somewhat like Mardi Gras with people gathering and wearing costumes and joining in the parades. There is plenty of dancing, free wine, and good food at cheap prices.
