Holy Trinity Greek Festival – OPA!
Opa! 20th Holy Trinity Greek Festival Draws a Crowd
Five Star Realty has been a major supporter of the Holy Trinity Greek Festival, with our broker, Cathy Sanders, and her family who have been assisting with the festival for years. This past weekend was the 20th Annual Holy Trinity Greek Festival, and it was as popular as ever.
A big draw of the Holy Trinity Greek Festival is the Greek food served throughout the day. We spoke to several people who had interesting ways to get the most Greek food out of the festival as possible. Some people came back each day of the three day Holy Trinity Greek Fest in order to get Greek food every day, and still other people bought huge quantities of Greek food that they planned to freeze for later. The Greek food at the Holy Trinity Greek Festival was so popular, in fact, that on Saturday, the cooks ran out of saganaki, or “flaming cheese,” and on Sunday, they ran out of spanakopita, tiropita, and dolmades, much to some latecomers’ dismay.
Another big draw to the Holy Trinity Greek Festival is the traditional Greek dancers that put on several performances each day during the festival. It’s great to see that the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church is keeping this part of Greek culture alive here in the United States.
The Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church posted some great photos from the festival on their Facebook page, Port Charlotte Greek Fest 2013. We include some photos from their Facebook page below and also some of our own, plus a video from the Holy Trinity Greek Festival!
