Courtesy of Press of Atlantic City

Ask the people who attend the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church Greek Festival every year about  their favorite part of this enduring festival and you are likely to get a variety of answers. 

Sure the rides and are cool,  the venders and the traditional Greek folk dancing are popular, and the fireworks are top-notch and a very entertaining way to wrap things up on Sunday night But the food may be the the main attraction, and with good reason…it’s really delicious!

The Greek Fest, celebrating its 30th Anniversary,  is on now through Sunday at the Church on Mill Road at Ridge Avenue in Egg Harbor Township.
