The St. Spyridon Greek youth dancers perform during the St. Spyridon Greek food festival in Monessen on Saturday Aug. 24, 2013.

The annual St. Spyridon Greek Food Festival was held Friday and Saturday at the Hellenic Center on Grand Boulevard in Monessen.

The event attracts visitors from throughout the Mid-Mon Valley and the greater Pittsburgh area. All the food and pastries are made from traditional Greek recipes handed down from generation to generation.

In addition to the food and fellowship, festival goers enjoyed live music featuring “Panagiri” orchestra, and nightly performances by the St. Spyridon Greek Dancers.

The Rev. Joseph DiStefano, pastor of St. Spyridon Church, will be offered Vesper services both evenings.
