Greek Festival 2011

Every year, the Salt Lake Greek community puts on a Greek Festival. It's a celebration of Greek culture and an educational tool. Mostly, it's a big party put on by a proud community that wants to keep it's identity. And, as this picture evidences, it was pretty well attended.

And then there's the food. Greeks, like Spaniards and Italians, are very proud of their traditional foods, and with good reason. I had a gyro, some spanakopita, dolmades, and an assortment of olives.

This food was prepared by an army of gracious volunteers.

The food was good and complimented the ongoing cultural celebration. Nothing could be more appropriate than eating a gyro while watching traditional Greek group dances.

In all, Greek Festival is a great time put on by a great group of people.
