Middle Eastern and Greek Food Festival

By Mauricio Segura

This weekend will be filled with aromas from the tastiest Greek and Middle Eastern dishes this side of Mount Olympus. These cultural dishes collide at the 6th annual Middle Eastern and Greek Food Festival hosted by St. James Orthodox Church in Milpitas.

For three days, visitors will enjoy a traditional market place, fun games for kids, arts and crafts, live entertainment, folk dancing, and amazing food. A cultural smorgasbord of cultures is waiting as guests mingle, hear traditional music, dance and taste a kaleidoscope of foods from both regions.

Children will enjoy face painting, games, a jump house, and more, while adults can learn about other cultures, shop for ethnic gifts, and participate in the fun.

A $10 raffle ticket - raffle will be held on Sunday (no need to be present for the drawing) - buys a chance to win an iPad, a cruise for two, a 2011 Toyota Camry or $20,000 cash!

But of course, the star of the festival will be the food - the best of Arabic and Greek cuisine with plenty of meat dishes for the meat lovers, as well as vegetarian choices for those who are not. All are invited to come by for the fun and enjoy a plethora of experience these cultures provide.
