Dozens of blue and white flags are flapping at the corner of Malvern and Grove in Richmond.
That can only mean one thing - it is time for the annual Richmond Greek Festival!
The four-day event has been around for 39 years, and over the years, it has developed into different meanings to different people.
For some, it means a chance to hang out with friends and have a good time. For others, it's all about learning more about Greek language and culture.
However, while I enjoy all of the above options, for me, the festival equals four days of eating this...
Yes, I'm a bit of a pig, and I'll probably have to wear elastic-waist pants to work next week (and perhaps the week after), but who cares? I love Greek food!
The Greek Festival is all about enjoying what you love, so whether it is art, music, dancing, language, or food, don't worry. It's all on the menu!
