Since we couldnt take a few months, and spend some time here....
We thought this would be the next best thing.
These pictures were taken inside The SLC Greek Orthodox Church- "Holy Trinity Cathedral" which hosts the festival.
The Baptismal Font
Beautiful Stained Glass Windows depicting the life of Christ beginning at the Nativity and ending at the Day of Pentecost --these are just two of the 10 that line the sanctuary.
Photo-Op on the grounds
These were taken inside the tents where the Greek Music & Dance Performances take place.
And last but not least, the food.....
Spanakopitakia & Pastitsio
Souvlakia (Chicken & Pork) and Gyros
This was only a small sampling of some of the menu items. There were also unbelieveable amounts of pastries but I was waaaay to busy teaching my kids all about Greek history to get any photos of those....yeah right! I just got a little sidetracked with all the honey and sugar. Oops!
These kind of days are just one of the many reasons I love homeschooling.
