There are many festivals; for the coming of season or just for fun festivals. An example may be a Harvest Festival, but you have never been to a festival like this before. This festival is a place to put aside cultural differences, this place is a Greek Festival. This Greek Festival was on a Friday, September 17th 2010. A Greek Festival is like any other festival; food, dancing, and souvenirs. This Greek Festival was at an Orthodox Church in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

 

Even if you aren't Greek , Greek Festivals are fun to go to. You can learn about their culture, food, and how they dance. In this specific one they had people who were taught to Greek dance and they showed you how you dance too. There dancing is more like a group dancing and just moving the feet. This dancing is also more of in a line, linking of the arm, and also most of the end people have a scarf they twirl around. They also have times where you can go up and dance however you like.

 

This festival specifically has Greek food to try, not just main meals, but desserts too. The main dish is usually a Gyro which is a pits bread (which is like a tortilla) and lamb meat. Greeks have a sweet tooth and one dessert I really like that they had there was Loukoumades (pronounced Luke-o-ma-dthes). This desert is fried dough sort of like bread dough with cinnamon, sugar, water, and syrup. It is very sweet and yummy. Also they have a mini deli area with all these sweets and more desserts. For example, they have baklavah which is layered, buttered, philo (very thin) dough with almods and pecans.
