The Dionysian custom of the Camel that comes from depths of centuries revives each year on Ash Monday in Kaina village. The inhabitants of the village participate in the custom, starting very early with the preparations for the construction of the camel. The camel is made of a wooden ladder, two baskets that make up the two camel bends, an old rug and the skeleton of the head. The camel usually has three people. One holds the head fastened to a wood, and the other two with the help of the baskets form its bends. The camel tour is a special event for the village, which in addition to the locals gathers residents of other areas. It is accompanied by traditional treats, tsikoudia and Cretan music.
