Go Greek

Posted By on Thu, Sep 10, 2009 at 10:13 AM

It’s time — Sept. 10-13 — for the 32nd annual Yiasou Greek Festival, and I’m excited. When I visited the fest for the first time last year, I realized that I have really been missing out. The festival offers a variety of Greek cultural exhibits, tours and lectures of the impressive cathedral, a variety of entertainment and costumes, an outdoor market, a bookstore, and last but not least, food. Choose from food selections like Greek salads, gyros, souvlaki sandwiches and more, to delicious pastries like baklava. You can even get the baklava with ice cream, which is a pure sundae delight. You do not want to miss out on this festival. Admission is $2 (School groups or senior citizen groups contact Helen Karras at 704-334-4771 for free admission). Sept. 10, 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; Sept. 11-12, 11 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sept. 13, 12 p.m.-8 p.m. Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral is located at 600 East Blvd.
