Every year I look forward to going to St Georges Greek Festival. In prior years, they held it at their Bethlehem church social hall. There was a wide variety of home cooked greek food. Nothing could be better, we even bought some and brought it home for later dinners. This year, they put up the Celtic fest tents a week early and St Georges used the tents downtown to have their festival.
Well, there was one booth of baked goods from the church and a few items… the musikfest beer truck, cigar vendor, RCN, hot dog/hamburger stand, and 2 gyro stores hawking food. There was a stage, but in the saturday afternoon hour I was there, it was loud greek music over the PA system, and a token Greek handbag booth.
To add insult to injury, everything was the currency of musikfest, those damn tickets and prices.
$7 for Kronos factory gyro. $4 beers, $4 for 4 pierogies. (greek ones?)
to be fair the desserts were from the church.
Never again, unless its back at the church.
The Russian Days Festival at St. Nicholas are the Russian equivalent, and it was equally as wonderful as the Greek was before this year. I hope they don’t follow suit.
Later, I went to the Market St block festival. Which is where I should have gone in the first place.
