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

The festival, which has been held for more than 40 years, 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. Among the featured foods were gyros, pastichio, moussaka, baklava and galatoboureko.

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