If you've never gone to a Greek festival, it's time. It should be on everyone's list of to-dos. The 11th Annual Greek Heritage Festival will be held the weekend of July 10-12 at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Saco, Maine. Last year's event saw almost 15,000 visitors come through its gates to enjoy the food, music and festivities dawn to dusk.

The Hellenic & Near East Musical Society Ensemble will play Friday and Saturday from 5-9 p.m., with Greek dance ensemble, V.E.V.A., entertaining the masses on Saturday at 4 & 7 p.m. Enjoy narrated church tours and Greek culture lectures and videos, bookstore, religious items, Greek grocery store, souvenirs, coffee house, and much, much more. Children will be entertained by the many activities just for them, and the food, well the food is almost the whole reason to go, and you can expect the traditional loukoumathes (Greek fried dough balls), baklava ice cream sundaes, and gyros dripping with slow roasted flavors.

Admission is FREE, with ample on site parking and handicap accessibility. Make plans now because rain or shine, the show must and will go on. For more information, contact Stephanie Koutroulis at 207-284-5651.
