This past weekend was a welcome departure from my regular schedule of retail, house chores, and email catch-up. Instead, I volunteered to dance with a group of traditional Greek dancers in my churches yearly Greek Festival fundraiser. For the past several months we have been preparing with weekly practices and bi-weekly rehearsals leading up to the final performance weekend.
After lengthy preparation and much anticipation on the part of many new group members (including myself), the weekend went off wonderfully well! Visitors were entertained, funds were raised, and by the end, our group of dancers were proud of the work they had accomplished. Here’s a look at into the whirl-wind weekend of the St. Demetrios Greek Festival of Fort Worth.
Of course, let’s not forget the undeniably delicious and irresistibly tempting Greek pastries! So, I couldn’t leave without my assortment box of goodies…I’m giving it two days.
(Goofy dancing Greek dolls that gave us a run for our money…they didn’t stop bouncing the entire festival!)
