Greek Festival – August Tradition in the Heights
By Anita Kazarian

Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral held their annual Greek Festival August 19-22. People come from all over Northeast Ohio to Cleveland Heights each year to celebrate the music, dance, food, culture, faith and Greek hospitality.

According to Pantelis “Pete” Moissis, the Festival Chair, planning for this major event started in April, the baking started in June, and hundreds of people helped with the final arrangements starting early August.

The rain on Saturday evening didn’t dampen any spirits. Food sales lines were long and two bands played continuous music. Food was being served in several locations in addition to the tented outdoor picnic area. Shops sold jewelry, art, books, plants, apparel, a huge flea market and even a cigar stand.
