Default Pensacola Greek Fest - worth it?

Thinking about getting the family out today. Is the Greek fest worth it? Anything interesting?

Food and Deserts.
Greek Dancing and Greek Music for entertainment.

If you have never been, know there are two areas to get food.
Inside and Outside
Different food at each location.
Get a menu before you get in line, so you know which line to get into.


Drinks are outside.

Then sit and eat and watch the entertainment.

We usually never miss it.

Tomorrow / Sunday, they will start selling out.
Sometimes, if the weather is real good, that start selling out on Saturday evening.

AWESOME!! Food

Thanks Tom & good meeting you the other day.

Selling out.... as in out of food? We already know the Greek lineup (menu) and looking forward to some good eats.

Thinking about heading that way around 3pm. I need to lay a few more planks on the surfboard before we can roll.
