Pastitsio, spanikopita, and greek salad

Well, it's been a busy week and here it is Thursday and I'm finally posting up pictures from our visit to the Greek Food Festival on Sunday. Richard's Mom came down for the day and we were very excited to have a guest to share the experience with. We also ran into some friends that we hadn't seen in awhile. It was old home week!

Since we had Richard's mom with us we parked and took the trolley instead of walking up the hill. Standing room only when we got on--it was harder to hold on and stay upright than I thought it would be, especially since my hands were still a little greasy from sunblock!

From top to bottom, left to right: 1. falafel, tabouleh, and hummus 2. Greek sausage, feta cheese, and flatbread 3. gyros 4. calamari 5. Pastitsio booth 6. some of the volunteer cooks

It has been raining nearly non-stop for the last three weeks here in Arkansas, so we were very excited to actually have a sunny day! We stuffed ourselves silly and kept playing musical chairs to get closer to the entertainment as people got up.

Greek dancers, and nesting dolls from the craft fair inside the church.

Unfortunately, we missed the Indian dancers by waiting until the last day to attend the festival, but we love the Greek dancers and the Middle Eastern dancers as well.

On the way back the the car, stomachs full and feeling contented, we were very glad to be seated on the trolley!
