Greek Festival enjoyed by Wilmingtonians

Wilmington has gone Greek. Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church is hosting its Fifteenth Annual Greek Festival this weekend.

Less than one percent of Wilmington’s population is of Greek decent, and the event is intended to celebrate and share Greek history and culture with the community.

There was plenty of music, dancing, and of course, great things to eat.

”It’s called a gyro. It’s chicken cheese and anything you pretty much want in it,” explained Turner Rodgers.

The Greek Festival began Friday and runs through Sunday. About 20,000 people are expected to attend.
