-FUPPETS- favorite Souvlaki, grilled over open flames, releases the most delicious aroma into the air.
Not only are there amazing delights for the taste buds, but Greek music is playing throughout, Greek dances are performed hourly, by both adults and children in traditional costumes, and the gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS GREEK WOMEN are a feast for the eyes!!!!!!!!!!!! Heartbreakingly beautiful Greek women abound at this festival. You will not be disappointed. the people watching is always great here.
Everyone is welcome, and it is always a great mix of people's from the entire world. Houston is an extremely cosmopolitan city and it is evident at the Greek festival that people the world over love them some Greek delights!

Remember to save room for the pastries, and get them early as they run out by noon Sunday! -FUPPETS- cannot wait! Also, if you love coffee, the Greek Coffee they sell is gonna blow your freakin' mind!
