The Apokries Festival is a large festival in Greece held around Lent and Signature HealthCARE recently celebrated this festival with a party and parade.

During the festival, they dress in fun costumes and celebrate their freedom. On Friday, stakeholders helped residents decorate themselves with colored hair spray, streamers, and other festive additions. To top off the fun the staff had a float travel through the whole center tossing candy off to the cheering crowd of residents, visitors, and stakeholders.

The Parade Queen, Norma, stated that she never thought in her young age she would be having so much fun and riding on a float.
