Members of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Modesto were bustling Friday to prepare for this weekend's annual Greek Food Festival. The dining tables were set, the coffeehouse was being decorated and the church women were packaging the homemade pastries – soooo many pastries – they’ve baked.
Above, below, etc.
The festival runs from noon to 9 p.m. today and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the church, 313 Tokay Ave. off McHenry. Tickets are $14 in advance, $17 at the door for adults, $8.50 for kids under 12, and include an authentic Greek dinner, music and entertainment, church tours and more. Because there’s limited parking at the church, a shuttle also is offered, from the Burlington Coat Factory store on McHenry. To learn more, call (209) 522-7694 or visit www.goaunnciation.org.
