Greek Festival, Darling Harbour

I swung past Greek Fest on Sunday hoping to sample some souvlaki, dolmades and perhaps a couple of loukoumades.

Apparently so did everyone else. Tumbalong Park was the most people-saturated I've ever seen. Every Greek person in Sydney must've been there.

The queues for food were far too long for me to even contemplate, but I lingered long enough to take a couple of snaps before I extricated myself from the frenzy of Greek patriotism.

    Ashame you didn't get some food!

    Perama did the food this year with our pals from Portobello Cafe. The crowds were amazing weren't they? We sold out of almost everything. I think the beautiful weather encouraged the number of people.

    Hi florizal - I didn't even realise you guys were there. I'm not surprised you sold out. The queues were crazy!

    Would've loved to have sampled some fare but I was only cruising through, on my way to dinner in fact, so perhaps just as well.

    The support from the Greek community was phenomenal. Very impressive.
