Greek Festival 2010

I spent Saturday and Sunday afternoon helping out at the Greek Festival, sponsored by Holy Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church.

This popular community event featured Greek cuisine, music, dancing, and a lot of “opas!!” The event is held to raise money in order to help build a new church.

Greece. America. Alaska.

Delicious, authentic Greek food!

A few samples for myself: dolmathes (grape leaves stuffed with rice, herbs, and spices), youvetsi (orzo pasta with pieces of lamb), and spanakopita (spinach pastry).

Spanakopita – filo layered with spinach, onions, and feta cheese

Souvlaki (a.k.a. “meat on a stick”)

Gyros (pronounced- “year-ros” not “ji-ros”) 😉Roasting the lamb.

Now that’s my kind of place!

Loukoumathes (aka “honey puffs) – Craig’s favorite!

$100 per raffle ticket. . . .

but you could win a Mercedes!!

Me hard at work in the dinner booth.

The Youth Booth.

    1. That looks really fun! So, did you win the mercedes? It would be fun to try that food, it all looked/sounded so good! I’d probably go a little crazy with the coffee and sweets… 😉

    1. Thank you and Craig so much for all of your hard work, time, and effort! I especially appreciate Craig essentially babysitting our son on and off over the weekend while Rebecca and I could work our 16+ hour shifts counting money and running the souvlaki/gyro booth 🙂
