The Greek festival, Mobile Alabama

This weekend I attended the Greek festival held at Annunciation Greek Orthodox church in Mobile, Alabama. Although I have never been to Greece I love Greek culture, food, art & architecture as they inspired the very popular " Greek Revival style in 19th century America.  I have been to many Greek festivals across America. Before going I was not expecting much but upon arriving this Greek festival turned out to be one of the best I have attended. Hundreds of people were there enjoying themselfs. I did not know that Mobile had such a large Greek population stretching back to the early 19th century. I first toured the beautiful church built in 1961 but incorporating the old with the new in it's interior and exterior. Then it was off to great Greek food, wine, shopping and being entertained by Greek Folk dancing! It was a night of excitement for all.
