As my friends and family well know, I like a good festival and a festival is even more alluring when it has tantalising food to explore and delve into. A Greek festival with Greek food definitely falls into the delicious day out category.
Hopefully this bizarre weather will get itself together for the weekend ahead, so one and all can get their festival shoes on and come for a day out at the Greek Festival 2012 in our lovely Darling Harbour.
The annual Greek Festival is celebrating it's 30th birthday and to kick off it's 3 month long festivities, you're all invited along to Darling Harbour to launch the celebrations on the 25th and 26th of February. With free entry to the event that's filled with dancing, music, performances, food and more, you can't go wrong.
There will be 2 days of vibrant entertainment found in Tumbalong Park, with live music from some of the finest Greek-Australian musicians as well as international acts. You will also have the opportunity to experience some fabulous modern and traditional Greek dancing, with dance groups from Sydney and Canberra showing off their rhythm and eye catching costumes to the sounds of Greek music.
Stalls will be in abundance, offering an assortment of Greek knick knacks, unique jewellery, books, CD's, specialty items and of course, my favourite, mouth watering Greek cuisine.
So get out and about, have a dance, listen to the lively music, grab some souvlaki and all the other yummy things you can get your hands on. Enjoy the atmosphere of the gorgeous Greek culture.
We went to this festival yesterday (Saturday) and what a humungous disappointment it turned out to be. There were only a few stalls open around the "arena" area. The food we bought was so dry (a dry kebab with a dry bun).
The honey balls were the best bit of the day.
We have been to the Greek festival in the past and so when I saw it was on again, we remembered the great times we had and off we went.
