Yiasou Greek Festival 2012 {Video Peek}

Here’s the video I promised for the Yiasou Greek Festival I visited this past weekend. I took the video clips pretty quickly, and I didn’t capture all the areas of the festival, but it gives you an idea of what the festival was like. Also, I probably could have gotten better video with natural daylight, but I went pretty late. The video clips here were taken near closing, between about 9-10pm. If you go next year, it’s crazy busy (at pretty much all hours)! I actually kind of like going later in the evening when it’s slightly less busy.

I usually get a gyro at the back of the festival (not taped), but I’m thinking I’m going to head to that inside area next year and get a plate. You get all sorts of goodness with those – an entree and a couple sides. The hardest decision for me, at this festival, is always which dessert to get. You can only eat so much, right? The Loukoumades are amazing, but I love the pastries, too. Maybe I’ll get the Loukoumades there and get pastries to go next year? Oh wait, I did that this year. hehe

Anywho, here the video…One day, I’ll be better at this. 🙂

  1. Loved your video! The festival looks like so much fun, especially all the dancing and food!! :o)

    Thanks so much for sharing this fun experience with us all. I have never been to a Greek Festival, and I can see that I have been missing out. Will have to check out the one held in Knoxville every year. The food alone would be fun to try! ;o)

    Have a great weekend!

    • Yes! You’d love it. I usually think of the food first, but the dancing is fun to watch, too. Plus, both of the Greek festivals I’ve been to (one in Charlotte and one in Greenville) have good cultural stuff, too! 🙂

  2. The apple orchard looks so fun, too! The one we go to every fall does not allow you to pick your own apples. Hmm… Still, we so enjoy buying the fresh apples and having apple treats for a while. There is also another orchard nearby with an Apple Barn Restaurant, a large crafts barn with apple themed treats, and lots of fun apple related stuff. We enjoy that, too. I love apples!

    We had a beautiful fall like day here, and it is so cool tonight. Fall is definntiely in the air. Nice! I am going to dig out some sweaters tomorrow.

    Enjoy your apples! :o)
