It’s Greek to Me


Hello

Today we are going to Muse about a Greek Festival. If this is your first visit, welcome to Musings. If you have been here before, welcome back. Over time we are going to talk about many things: the past, the present, perhaps the future, travel, art, society and more. Wherever my musing takes me. I hope you will come along with me.

It’s Greek to Me

Down the road from where we live about a mile is St Catherine’s, a Greek orthodox Church.  Each year at this time they have a festival, with music, food, dancing and a bazaar.  This year it even had a kiddie carnival with rides.

The festival lasts three days and attracts large crowds which is great for the church since it is a fund-raiser.  Some of the neighbors are not thrilled, however, because people park up and down the adjoining streets.  Several were barricaded with signs stating “No Parking On This Street”.

Jeanette and I decided to attend this year.  The last time I had been must be fifteen years ago and she had never been.  So we went, yesterday.  We solved the parking problem by using the private lot of a friend’s business.

The festival was in full swing when we got there.  The main hall was packed with people, most of them eating.  In the background dancers in Greek Costumes performed traditional dances.  It was noisy and fun.

I apologize for the quality of the pictures.  I only had my cell phone with me and it is old.  The newer ones do better.

Outside the main hall was a large temporary tent and more eating areas.

And, food stations.  Gyros, sausages and lamb kabob . .  . that sort of thing.  Good for heart burn.

There was a small ensemble playing spirited music and people were up and dancing.

There were items for sale including dancing costumes (for the women).  They are displayed on the rear wall.

It is too late for you to take part this year.  The festival has closed.  But it was fun and worth doing.  Next year, if you are in the area and see it advertised you ought to check it out.  You will be happy you did.
