Greek taste treats and Island Kids featured at Campbell wine, food fest


Authentic Greek gyros, traditional dances performed by the “Island Kids,” reuniting with old friends, gathering family, and heart-stopping Greek-style baklava are among the enticing draws to this weekend’s Archangel Michael Greek Wine and Food Fest.

The church festival at 401 Twelfth St., which started Friday, , continues from noon to 10 p.m. today and Monday.

Michael and Despina Mike III of Poland, who brought their 10-month-old son, Michael IV, to the festival, said they plan to raise their children in the Greek tradition.

“Tradition is a big part of the Greek community and of our lives,” said Michael. Despina’s parents are members of Archangel Michael.
