The ugly side of Limassol’s carnival (photo)

After a night of carnival festivities, Limassol revellers have left behind them mounds of rubbish and broken chairs and tables on Saripolou Street, to the dismay of restaurant owners who are uncertain whether they will be able to reopen as normal tomorrow philenews reports.

It said that restaurant owners are also upset with Limassol Municipality who they say failed to protect their properties.
