Greek folk dances ...


and folk music during the "Greek Day".


In intrument and song, the emphasis was on the traditional.


Dancing at national rythms were at their best,
especially around the fires


There were two nights of sub-camp fires.
Early in the Jamboree in order for the Scouts to get
acquainted and later on as a final opportunity to meet
all together in informal surroundings for the last time.


But the big night for fires was when the sub-camps
got together to light four "regional fires".
Then, the delegations really vied with one another in
the entertainment they provided.


Visitors from Athens who were up that night said they'd
never seen anything like it before.


Singing and dancing ...


... all part of the tremendous fun
those velvet nights at Marathon ...
