Plenty of visitors, Greeks and foreigners, come to Spetses every September to attend the bright festive activities «Armata», which last a week and are organized in the memory of the naval battle of Spetses. The festive schedule includes painting exhibitions, music-dance events (concerts, choirs, traditional dancing and music groups, etc.), theatrical plays, cannon fires and more. On the second Saturday of September, a representation of the historical naval battle takes place with the burning of a model of the Turkish flag ship and a narration of the historical events which culminate in a firework display.
