Marlborough – Revelers celebrated cultural traditions Labor Day weekend as Sts. Anargyroi Greek Orthodox Church hosted the 10th annual Grecian Festival from Sept. 5 to 7.
A dinner station offered lamb shank, and lamb and chicken kebabs. Among the a la carte items were stuffed grape leaves, pastitsio (baked pasta), spanakopita (spinach pie) and Greek salad. Guests’ taste buds were tempted by desserts including pastries, loukoumades (fried dough) and baklava sundae. New this year was a Greek yogurt parfait.
Contributing to the ambiance were live musical acts and dance troupes. Children were entertained with inflatable amusements and face painting, while adults browsed a Greek market and silent auction. Church tours were available each day. Disc jockey George Regan provided music throughout the weekend.
Activities took place outdoors on the church grounds as well as inside Hellenic Hall, which opened in 2011 following a fire in 2001. Proceeds from past years’ festivals helped its building fund.
