FESTIVAL: Yiasou Greek Festival 

Thursday, Sept. 9

The annual four-day Yiasou Greek Festival allows folks to immerse themselves in Greek culture without even applying for a passport or booking a flight. Given, it's not exactly the same as really being there, but it is one of the next best things. At the festival, folks can enjoy music and dancing native to Greece, Greek attire and costumes (including those wearing body armor) Greek cuisine (yes, this includes baklava and plenty of other goodies), displays and exhibits on Greece, tours of the cathedral, a lecture series on Greek culture, a "marketplace" with numerous vendors and more. Plus, there will be a raffle for the opportunity to win a free trip to Greece — and remember, you never know until you try. $2 admission; free for children 12 years old and under. Sept. 9, 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; Sept. 10-11, 11 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sept. 12, 12-8 p.m. Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 600 East Blvd. 704-334-4771. www.yiasoufestival.org.
