I had a quick trip to Atlanta again to see my cousin Cassie, Great Aunt Becky and the rest of my Greek family. The festival was awesome, as usual, with the one exception that my cousin Christopher was missing from the performances. He’s moved to California, and Atlanta just isn’t the same without him. The festival is a celebration of Greek food, traditional Greek dances and Greek music. Here are some of my favorite photos from the event.

These are costumes that I did for the dance group last year, from the area of Rhodes. They call them costumes, but they are really the traditional dress of a particular area in Greece. Each area has several costumes and several dances.

The fabulous musicians.

And just in case you are wondering, no, I’m not really Greek. But I was given an honorary Greek name: Lawopolous. Sometimes they change your name when you get off the boat in the America’s.
