This custom is performed at Petrousa -prefecture of Drama- on the 7th and 8th of January. The feigned camel along with the mens group performs the ritual which climaxes with the virtual seeding and harvest and the saritirical representation of local marriage. At Feres, Evros, it coincides with the celebration of carnival. Camel is the protagonist of the last Sunday of carnival.
