Yassou! Festival

Last weekend Yianni and I headed toward Grand Rapids Michigan to attend the Yassou! Greek Cultural Festival. Co-chairs Esther Caruso Koukios and David Darling did a fantastic job coordinating this wonderful weekend event at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.

My cousin Becky is featured here in this promo on WoodTV8.

I loved spending the weekend with my cousins Stathi and Georgia.

I’ve been to several Greek festivals but this one is definitely my favorite. The food was delicious. Look at all this souvlakia!
The pastries were incredible. My favorite was the galaktoboureko, a semolina-based milk custard in phyllo.
Music was performed by The Levendes and the Greek dancers were adorable.
You should definitely plan on attending next year. Here’s a slideshow of my photos of Yassou! Enjoy!


Like it says on the Yassou! t-shirt: Eat! Dance! Be Greek!

I'm Greek. This is my journal. It's all about food and family.
