Ochi Day is a Greek National Holiday celebrating the Anniversary of the 'NO'.
It is celebrated throughout Greece, Cyprus and the Greek communities around the world on October 28 each year, to commemorate the rejection by Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas (in power from August 4, 1936, until January 29, 1941) of the ultimatum made by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini on October 28, 1940 during World War II. Hydra celebrates with a church service at the Monastery followed by parades of children and students in the harbour.
The martyrdom of Aghios Konstandinos, he Patron Saint of Hydra is observed at the church of Aghios Konstandinos which is built on the site where the boy Konstandinos was born and raised. Many people attend the service followed by a procession through the pine forest and down to the harbour. It's a colourful and good humoured parade that visitors are welcome to walk along with.
Swimrun is a multiple-stage competition which involves participants running and swimming over a cross-country race course that involves many transitions between the swim and run stages of the race. What defines a swimrun is that its always carried out outdoors and in water where the goal is to go from a starting point to a finish point through a course with at least 2 swim and run sections. All the equipment that a participant starts with has to be carried all the way to the finish line. Even though swimrun urges participants to use flotation equipment, equipment larger than 100×60 cm is not allowed. Because of safety measures a swimrun competition is usually carried out by teams but there are several races where you can race individually. There are three classes to compete in; either a men`s class, women`s class or a mixed gender class.
