On Sunday, September 19, 2022, Westwood's St. Mark of Ephesus Orthodox Cathedral hosted its second day of its Greek Fest. Lines for the event's main offering of delicious Greek food seem to get longer each year, but the wait is worth it. Visitors could select from a variety of authentic Greek food offerings, including spanakopita, moussaka, and souvlaki, baklava, Greek coffee and many other offerings. Some visitors on Saturday had returned for another tasty meal on Sunday.

Live entertainment included Greek music and a demonstration by Greek dancers. There were bounce house activities for kids, and a playground. 

Enjoy these event photos! For those who didn't make it to the Greek Fest this year, keep this fun event in mind for next year.
