Cultural Saturday: Greek Festival

bannerskinny.jpg

After a somewhat boring Norwegian celebration, we happily remembered that it was the weekend of the Annual Greek Festival put on by Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral. The church is on Massachusetts Avenue, just like the Norwegian embassy, so it was a quick walk. We were early but people were already lining up for the food - lots of gyros and lamb and souvlaki outside, and an enormous buffet in the basement.

I love Greek Food. We have a great Greek restaurant I try to get to when I am in town.

Greek Festivals are a lot of fun! What an interesting day you had, even if the Norwegian celebration was boring.

Sounds like a lot of fun. Did you go inside the church? :)

Hope you have a nice holiday weekend!

Gorgeous church! I too absolutely love Greek food. One of my fave restaurants in Halifax is OPA! I'll have to go there soon just so I can blog about it! :)

Annie, I tried but it was locked!

Kim:

We missed the Greek festival here but man, that is some good food!
