Let it be Greek October 28, 2006

A festival brings Hellenic happenings to Lecanto church grounds

Be Greek this weekend by immersing yourself in the culture at the annual festival at St. Michael’s church.

With Hellenic customs and hospitality being the focus, that means there will be lots of sumptuous food, topped off by dancing, vendors and just plain fun. The festival draws thousands each year, many lured by the smell from an outdoor grill where meats for gyros and souvlaki are cooked. You can also go inside the hall for a home-cooked platter of roast lamb or other traditional dishes. Now in its 14th year, the festival also serves a great menu of entrees, sandwiches and desserts.

A band, with a bouzouki playing traditional music, and dancers will entertain. During the dancing and music you’ll hear people shout out the traditional Greek cheer “Opa! Opa!” as they enjoy the events around them.

Dinner entrees include lamb shank, spinach pie, cheese pie, roast chicken, Greek salads and pastitsio, a lasagna-style dish. Many dancing and musical groups will perform over the course of the event.
