OPA! Sounds Greek to me…

The 50th annual Greek FUNstival was held this weekend at the St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church in San Antonio. Leicalady and I have been the last two years and loved it so much that we decided to take GrandMoye Sunday afternoon. The festival is a collection of activities; including gourmet Greek cuisine(Souvlaki-grilled shish kabob, Pastichio – baked macaroni layered with seasoned beef and cheese, Fasolakia – Greek-style green beans and of course Salata – Greek Salad) The Plaka (town square) is transformed into a Greek market. The native Greek dancing is our favorite! Greek ethnic dancing is performed by the youth of the church. They are adorned in festive Greek costumes. The dancing is a cherished tradition that brings people together and reflects the customs and folklore of the different regions and islands of Greece.
