Snaptchat Greek Festival
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The end-of-summer heat was strong on Saturday afternoon, but that didn’t dampen spirits at day two of the Greek Festival.
As the afternoon grew long, revelers continued to trickle into the lot behind Holy Trinity-St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church on Richmond Avenue for Greek food, dancing and rides.
Festival-goers enjoyed gyros, souvlaki, moussaka, pastitio, tiropita and spanakopita along with a summer favorite, hot dogs. Rides are provided by Lifetime Amusements.
“We’re proud to bring our Greek culture, heritage, traditions, and especially our cuisine to the Staten Island community,” said Polimnia Grillos, member of Holy Trinity-St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church. “We welcome everyone.”
Tours of the church, conducted by Father Nick, started at 7 p.m.
This is the first weekend of the festival and it will continue to take place at 1641 Richmond Ave. There is on-street parking for festival goers only. The admission fee is $2; kids under five get in for free.
