Baltimore has kept this kind of neighborhood for much longer than a lot of areas probably because of its historic blue color base, and festivals are supported by the city government. In addition, t's a draw for tourists. Washington DC has many many foreign nationalities represented in the population but it is still the churches that keep these kinds of events going.
|This is the hall of the church|
|I had all mezze|
|He had the roast chicken dinner|
|What the tent had is below|
|No, we didn't have any sundaes|
We went to see the Greek dancing inside the main hall. I had seen another group of children dancing inside yet another tent while he went back to the car for his phone. This 2nd group was one of many throughout the day, from little ones on up to adults. The tiny boy on the far left really was good and I hope he continues with the dance as he grows up. You could tell he felt the music and wasn't just doing the steps. What woman doesn't like a man who can dance???
While we bypassed those Baklava sundaes, we did have our desserts while watching the dancing. Each year I have my absolute favorite. Galaktobouriko. One piece to eat and one to take home. He got the pastry sampler which is lasting us all week.
