Day Twenty-Seven

Day 27, originally uploaded by canucklehead07.

The annual Greek Day Festival transformed Vancouver streets into sights and sounds, and appetizing smells. I’ve been going to the festival every year since I was a little kid, but unfortunately I haven’t gone the past couple of years. It was good to be back.

Thousands of people took to the streets in Kitsilano. There were lots vendors selling products – including a free charicature drawing booth and a massage parlor. Of course there was no limit to entertainment. Stilt walkers and fictional Greek characters roamed the streets, music was blaring in every corner, and a stage of traditional Greek dancers kept the party alive.

Pictured above is a delicious pork souvlaki which I waited nearly ten minutes in line for. It was worth the wait. Five city blocks were lined with tables of a variety of Greek food. From souvlakis to gyros and olives to Loukoumades (fried dough balls), there were plenty of options to fill your belly.

If only Greek Day was everyday.

later days,
