Are there any Greek cuisine lovers at Smith Mountain Lake besides me? If so, don’t miss out on the yearly Greek Festival in Roanoke! This year it’s on September 18th, 19th, and 20th from 11 am. to 10 pm Fri./Sat. and 12 to 7 pm. Sun. We love that a portion of the proceeds for this fun event will go to benefit The Rescue Mission and Center in the Square.
If you have never tried Greek food, then you may be in for a treat. The Greeks don’t go in for drab foods, they love rich flavors and tastes. The culture as a whole is full of loving, intense, laughing, hard-working folks. There are few cultures you could say are more enjoyable. When we were kids, we had wonderful friends who were very Greek. They played hard, loved the Lord, and were rich in compassion, and honesty and always enjoyed good food. We were usually exposed to some new ideas and taste experiences during those visits.
If you love all things Greek or enjoy new things, go check out the yearly Greek Festival at http://www.roanokegreekfestival.com. Besides the great food, there will be live music, traditional costumes and dancing, pottery, jewelry, painting, contests, and children’s events. A fantastic time to be had by all!
